The victim, named as Angelique Sloss, was sunbathing with two friends in a park in Reims, France, when a group of reportedly Muslim women attacked her.

One of them is said to have shouted at her for "immorally" exposing her skin in public.

When Angelique shouted back the group crowded round her slapping and punching her.

Aged between 16 and 24 the five women were arrested after the ambush and the eldest three – named as Ines Nouri, Zohra Karim and Hadoune Tadjouri – are set to appear in court in September.

A 16-year-old and 17-year-old also involved remain anonymous due to their age.

The attack has sparked nationwide fury in France and hundreds have taken to Twitter with the hashtag #jeportemonmaillotauParcLeo – I wear my bikini in the park – trending.

Many women donned their bikinis in public spaces and uploaded photos claiming their right to wear what they want, when they want.

The social media campaign brings back memories of the hashtag #JesuisCharlie  which trended worldwide after the Charlie Hebdo massacre in January, this year.

A small rally was also organised by the anti-racist organisation SOS Racisme in the park where the attack happened.

Women and the odd man showed up wearing swimwear despite the rain and cold to prove their "right to wear a bikini".

But the Mayor of Reims has urged the public not to assume this attack was religiously-motivated.

Arnaud Robinet said: "We have to be very careful not to jump to conclusions.

"All the same, I can understand why people have assumed that this attack had religious motives. If that turns out to be the case, it is a very serious incident."

The prominent far-right groups in the country have used the incident as proof that Islam is threatening France.
