Police say a mob in Spain has beaten a Muslim woman nearly to death as revenge for the Barcelona attacks. The crime appears to be purely racially motivated and the woman was wearing a hijab when she was set upon by the violent mob. Police in Spain have not released the woman's name but do say she is a 38-year-old Muslim woman. Doctors in Spain are reportedly keeping the woman in the hospital while she recovers from the beating.

Spanish authorities are treating the assault as a racist attack and the Diversity Management Unit of Madrid's city police is investigating the crime. The assault took place outside of a Usera metro station in the Spanish capital. In a statement, the Madrid police say that the victim did not get a good look at her attackers' faces. This will make identifying them difficult and they are urging anyone with information about the crime to report it to the Madrid police. The victim did nothing to provoke the attack and investigators are saying the attackers did not have any armbands or other clothing that would link them to an anti-Islamic group.
Local authorities have stepped up police patrols near mosques in the Spanish capitol. The assault on the Muslim woman comes just days after a massive terrorist plot unfolded in Barcelona that killed 13 people and injured dozens more. Spanish police believe that all of the perpetrators in the terror attack have been arrested or shot but there is still an ongoing investigation to identify any other persons involved.
