A young Moroccan mother in Belgium escaped death when a driver deliberately drove into her as she crossed the road.
The incident took place as Fatima Ziati crossed Kersbeek Avenue on October 21.
Ms Ziati told her story to Lacapitale because she is determined that the racist perpetrator is punished for the attack.
“This is a racist person, she drove towards me because I wear the niqab,” Ms Ziati said.
The 33-year-old mother said the woman, who was driving a Peugeot, had enough time to brake, but instead “she accelerated and deflected towards us.”
The victim said that she was accompanied by her sister who managed to jump aside and escape death.
But the car hit the victim and she was dragged on the edge of the windshield.
“I cried, I cried, I begged the driver to stop. But she laughed with a satanic smile, as if she had fun doing that. And she was kicking the brake and the wheel in zigzag strokes trying to get me down,” Ms Ziati added.
The incident has been reported to the police and the investigation is still ongoing.
