Outrage after assault on Chinese students in France
« on: June 16, 2013, 05:30:12 AM »
Via the BBC:

Bloggers in China have reacted with outrage to news of an assault on six Chinese students in France's wine-producing Bordeaux region.

Two people were arrested after the drunken attack, in which one student was seriously injured when a glass bottle hit her face, police say.

French Interior Minister Manuel Valls condemned the "xenophobic" attack.

The attack was widely criticised on China's most popular social networking service, Weibo.

One blogger said France's reputation was "damaged" while another said Chinese people should avoid visiting the country.

The students were in France for a year to study oenology. Three people, all of them visibly drunk, were involved in the attack in the village of Hostens, in the Landes region near Bordeaux.
