Father beats daughter in Italian mall for not wearing veil

(ANSA) - Modena, August 10 - An 18-year old Moroccan woman was physically assaulted by her father in a shopping center in northern Italy on Friday for refusing to wear a veil and to have an arranged marriage. The victim had reportedly been living away from her family for several years because she rejected their religious strictures. Upon meeting his daughter Friday at the GrandEmilia mall in Modena, the father kicked and punched her, kneed her in the face and fractured her nose, police said. The woman was taken to the hospital and it is expected to take three weeks for her to recover. The father has been charged with aggravated assault. photo: archive picture of a woman in Italy with a veil
