Sunday night, after France’s World Cup win at the Final, a young French couple was savagely assaulted in Poitier’s Saint-Eloi district for responding “no, Vive la France !” to a man who just shouted “Vive l’Algérie !” (“Go Algeria”).
Voice of Europe (h/t Maurice) Poitiers was not an exception to the wave of violence following France’s win at the World Cup. Around midnight, a 19-year-old man and his girlfriend were walking in Poitiers’s Saint-Eloi district when they heard a driver of a car shout “Vive l’Algérie !”.
The couple answered with “No, Vive la France !” which upon hearing, the driver got out of his car and launched a jab at the young girl who quickly fell to the ground. Other men came and joined in the beating. The young man missed eight days of work because of the attack.
The police are still searching for the perpetrators. The incident came just a few hours after the assault of a young 22-year-old woman in front of Poitier’s train station. Three young men stopped and vandalised her car, before trying to steal her phone when she took photos of the damage.
French cities were besieged by Muslim migrants after the World Cup final, with shops being looted, vehicles set alight and buildings torched. Another video out of Paris shows Muslim migrant youths robbing suitcases from a moving tourist bus.
