FRENCH police are on the hunt for a thug who broke into a mosque in southern France over the weekend and scrawled highly offensive aunts on the walls, local officials said.

The Grand Mosque of Perpignan, a town which lies close to the southern border with Spain, was also vandalised with a swastika on Friday night; and police found the words “Arabs out” daubed on one of the outside walls.

The anti-Muslim graffiti was spotted by the caretaker in the early hours of Saturday morning and was immediately removed, a local prefecture spokesman said, before adding that the mosque leaders had since filed a damages claim.

The Perpignan prefect, Philippe Vigne, visited the Grand Mosque on Saturday afternoon “as a show of support and to express his solidarity towards the local Muslim community in the wake of the racist attack” the French interior minister, Bruno Le Roux, said.

In a press release issued on Saturday, Mr Le Roux strongly condemn the graffiti attack: “Racists and all of those who are trying to divide the country have no place in France, where all religions are equally respected.”
