When police asked a burka-clad woman to show her ID in the southern French city of Marseille, she and her fellow Muslims reacted with anger, and a brawl with police ensued. One policeman was reportedly bitten, and the woman and several other people were arrested. They were released later without being charged, however, in a gesture to honor the holy month of Ramadan.
In other news, seven children were killed by an explosive booby trap in Ghor province in Afghanistan. The bomb’s intended target was said to have been the Afghan police. Elsewhere in Afghanistan, two Coalition servicemen were killed by a roadside bomb.
