Everybody is outraged.

MONTAUBAN: French Muslim and Jewish groups were united in outrage Wednesday after two pig heads were dumped at a mosque in a town where a gunman killed two paratroopers in March.

The French Council of the Muslim Faith described the defilement of the mosque in the town of Montauban as "a racist and xenophobic provocation" and urged the authorities to bring those responsible to justice swiftly.

Pigs are considered unclean by Muslims, who are currently observing the holy month of Ramazan.
