A Paris court has given Jeanne Ruby, an elderly French woman, a one-month suspended sentence for attacking an Arab tourist who was wearing a face-covering Muslim veil.
The court also ordered the attacker to pay $1,140 in damages to the victim.
The Arab woman, a citizen of the United Arab Emirates, was attacked last February while spending her holiday in the French capital.
