Mother and 3 daughters stabbed for 'being scantily dressed' at pool
One of the three girls, aged 8, is reportedly fighting for her life after she and her family were stabbed at the French holiday resort in South France, yesterday, July 19, 2016.
The young girls, the older sisters, aged 12 and 14 respectively, and their mother, 46, were attacked at the resort in Garda-Colombe in the Hautes-Alpes near Montpellier.
The family, having come from Nantes, in France’s west, to holiday in the Alps region, were eating breakfast when the culprit, Mohammed B reportedly attacked them.
Their attacker is reported to have fled the scene after the attack but has since been apprehended.
Although the police are yet to confirm the motive of their attacker, local media reports that the attacker had revealed that the females had been too "scantily dressed."
The mum and her eldest daughters are reported to have suffered non life threatening injuries although the same cannot be said for the third daughter who was rushed to the hospital following the attack.
