French President Jacques Chirac said he did not regret his condemnation of an anti-Semitic attack that turned out to be a hoax. Chirac was one of the first to condemn an alleged anti-Semitic attack on a woman and baby July 9, in which the woman claimed six youths cut her hair and drew swastikas on her stomach. On Tuesday, the woman — who is not Jewish — admitted to police that she and her boyfriend had staged the attack. The woman remains in custody pending charges.
