RTE 1 / 3 France is one of the worst countries for women to be killed in the world, according to a new UN report.
France is ranked 14th out of 35 countries for female victims of violence, with the majority of the deaths being due to rape and domestic violence.
It is also ranked as one of just six countries where the murder rate for women has risen over the past 20 years.
But according to French newspaper Le Figaro, the French government is also behind a murder spree in which women have been stabbed, burned, electrocuted and strangled.
One of the victims, a 27-year-old French woman, was found on a balcony in Paris, stabbed in the head and neck and her throat slashed.
A week after her death, a 19-year old woman was found hanging from a noose in the street outside the French embassy in Washington DC.
“This is one more in a long line of attacks that are on our society, and our country,” France’s interior minister, Bruno Le Roux, told the French broadcaster BFMTV.
Le Rouxf said that in the past five years, women had been killed at a rate of three to four a week.
“Women are targeted because they have no rights, no money, no future,” he added.
French President Emmanuel Macron, whose government has been criticised for a lack of progress in tackling domestic violence, is due to meet his US counterpart, Donald Trump, on Tuesday.
Mr Trump is expected to make the case that France should not be singled out.
He has previously described France as one the world’s worst countries in terms of women’s rights.
