FRANCE: Algerian Muslim kills wife with machete in front of his children, hacking off both her feet and a hand

The drama unfolded in an otherwise uneventful morning in the family’s apartment in Evry (Essonne) in the quiet residential area of Champtier-du-Coq. A Muslim family – parents and two teenage  daughters and 6-year old twins – were at home.

When the 50-year old father violently attacked the daughter, the mother quickly intervened to protect the girl which caused him to turn his rage on her. He struck her several times with a machete, slashing off both her feet and a hand in a wild-eyed rage. One of the children called for help but the victim died upon arrival at the hospital.

The couple’s children, as well as the two small children that the eldest daughter was babysitting, were all hospitalized for trauma. The father was immediately arrested.

Cutting off hands and feet is a common sharia punishment in the Muslim world…but mostly for stealing.  Yet Muslims often dole out the punishment whenever they see fit…usually with no repercussions.
