“Seven masked men mostly from Calais have been arrested by French police on suspicion of attacking Iraqi Kurds with iron bars in a nearby refugee camp. The victims were reportedly waiting by the road to board trucks traveling to the UK.
The alleged perpetrators, aged between 22 and 44, are accused of attacking four migrants from the Grande-Synthe migrant camp with a mainly Kurdish population near the town of Dunkirk, in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais-Picardie region.
The attackers, wearing balaclavas and carrying iron bars, were later located by police near Dunkirk, some 37 kilometers from the port city of Calais.
Prosecutor Eric Fouard told French media that he doesn’t know if those arrested had “carried out previous attacks” against refugees. “This is the first time such a thing happens here [in Dunkirk],” the prosecutor said, adding that the attackers are currently in custody.”
These men, whoever they are, sacrificed their freedom & livelihoods to defend Europe from the invading hordes. Hail to the heroes!
