Roma boy attacked in Paris: the picture that will shock France


François Hollande calls brutal gang assault on 16-year-old Roma boy 'unspeakable and unjustifiable attack on all the principles on which our republic was founded' Warning: graphic image readers may find distressing

By Rory Mulholland

It is the photo that will shock France.

Beaten to a pulp, dumped in a supermarket trolley and left for dead on the side of the road.

That was the fate of 16-year-old Darius, a Roma boy snatched from his family by a vigilante mob who accused him of burglary.

The teenager was in a medically induced coma on Wednesday in a Paris hospital, where doctors said it was not certain he would pull through after suffering multiple skull fractures.

But already this gruesome attack has sparked wide condemnation.
