Moroccan Woman Assaulted by Moroccan Youths in Amsterdam

8 May 2012


A pregnant woman of Moroccan origin was attacked in Amsterdam  by a group of youths, also of Moroccan origin, consequently suffering a miscarriage. According to de Volkskrant the youth attacked her because “she was also of Moroccan origin and her boyfriend was black.”
The incident saw little coverage except for a story in the city’s local newspaper and a commentary in de Volkskrant. Writer Bart Schut concludes that “Moroccans have a racism problem and that a different outcome would have transpired had a group of white Dutch men committed the attack.
