Boar head found outside French mosque

 France's Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin has strongly condemned "unacceptable acts" targeting the Muslim community following the discovery of a boar's head near a mosque in the eastern part of the country. A prosecutor has initiated an investigation into "incitement to racial hatred" after members of the mosque in Contrexeville, located in the Vosges region, found the boar's head on Friday.

Darmanin, speaking late on Saturday, revealed that two other mosques in northern France had also been vandalized. "This weekend, mosques in Valenciennes and Fresnes-sur-Escaut were vandalized. Additionally, a mosque in the Vosges was targeted," he stated. "I strongly denounce these unacceptable actions against our Muslim compatriots," he added, in a statement posted on X, formerly known as Twitter.

These incidents occurred during the holy month of Ramadan, a period during which Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset and engage in prayer and reflection.
