A 19 year-old Muslim girl was attacked by two men who ripped off her hijab and dress and drew a cross onto her body in Anderlues, 60 kilometers south of Brussels on Monday night.

The assailants shouted racial slurs at the girl as she tried to escape, calling her a "filthy Arab" before they pinned her down to the ground.

Belgian police have started an investigation into the incident.
