Turkish prosecutors issued an arrest warrant Wednesday for a man caught on camera punching a woman because she was wearing shorts during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
The attack, which took place a week earlier on June 14, took place
on an Istanbul bus and footage of the incident has sparked uproar from
Turkish women's activists. University student Melisa Saglam is seen
sitting down on the bus when a man gets up to exit the vehicle. As he
moves toward the door, he punches Saglam in the face.
