PARIS, Jan 5 (KUNA) -- A French court ruled a prison sentence against a former French military man for desecrating Muslim graves in the southwestern city of Castres, French media sources reported late Wednesday.
The sources noted that the Frenchman, who is also a member in the National Front of the Far-Right extremist group, was sentenced into three years in prison with suspension and a fine, EUR 1000, for the families of the Muslim individuals, whose graves were desecrated by the convict.
In January 2011, the former military man placed three pieces of pigskin on three graves in the Muslim graveyard in Castres, added sources. He described his act as a resistance to the "Arabic and Islamic invasion to France".
According to Islamic organizations in France, attempted attacks against Islamic existence in France has increased by 34 percent last year. Last week, Muslim graves in southern France were vandalized for the second time in three months. (end) ta.ma KUNA 051029 Jan 12NNNN
