A teenager (17) who was beaten up by a family member for not fasting on Ramadan was discovered Sunday night tied up in an apartment in Miramas (Bouches-du-Rhône). Firefighters and police responded around 10pm, after neighbors heard moans and noticed a water leak from the apartment upstairs.
The emergency services found the young man inside, wrists and ankles shackled, showing signs of a beating, according to a source close to the investigation. The young man, a French citizen born in Algiers, said he was beaten for not fasting on Ramadan. He was certified by a doctor as incapacitated for work for 15 days.
