A woman and her three daughters have been stabbed in a French resort for being ‘scantily dressed’.

The man is believed to have attacked the three girls outside the family’s apartment before entering the building and attacking the mother.
Sources close to the investigation told local press that the family had been targeted because of the way they were dressed.
French media says that the man is of Moroccan descent and is 37 years old. It is also reported that he is known by police for previous crimes.
Mr Francou, said the girl had suffered a perforated lung and is being treated at Grenoble.
