Two Muslim men have been jailed after they brutally attacked a couple for eating a "blasphemous" ham pizza.
Youness Boussaid and Fatah Bouzid, both 27, approached their victims at a food vendor near Le Mix Bar in in Douai, France, and offered them cocaine.
When the two Arab men noticed ham on the couple's pizza they told them they would "go to hell" for eating it.
The victim's had spent the evening at the nearby nightclub before approaching the vendor for an evening snack.
After being accused of eating the ham, which is forbidden in the Islamic religion, the couple suffered a brutal and humiliating ordeal from their attackers.
The attackers caressed the woman's blond hair before forcing their fingers into her nose, causing her to lose consciousness and fall to the ground.
They then began to beat her male friend before security staff from Le Mix Bar intervened.
The attackers escaped the scene but after a police investigation the registration from the car they used led to their arrest.
Despite being identified by the pizza chef, the victims and a further witness, Boussaid and Bouzid denied the charges.
The thugs were found guilty and jailed for six months each.
They were also ordered to pay £1,200 in compensation each.
The incident follows an attack on a waitress in Nice for selling alcohol during Ramadan in June.
The men involved were given six month suspended jail terms.
