MidiLibre/Scoop, Jun 6

On Sunday, the body of a woman was found by a cyclist.

Police confirmed on Wednesday that the woman was a prostitute from Nîmes, and she had been shot several times.

The cyclist saw the body on a road in Rodihan, between Nîmes and Beaucaire, Gard. The victim was identified using her mobile phone.

A 23 year old man has been arrested by police officers from Nîmes, and a search of his home in Marguerittes was underway on Wednesday.

The victim is Romanian, and is known to the police, because in 2016 she was badly beaten during a battle with Romanian and Albanian pimps in broad daylight in Nîmes near the Boulevard Gambetta.

Police are questioning several people.
