(ANSAmed) - ROME, APRIL 3 - The Femen movement of Ukranian women who get naked as a form of protest, has launched the 'Topless Jihad'. The initiative is aimed at supporting Amina Tyler, a Tunisian young woman who imitated the group by posting her topless pictures on Facebook, sparking the anger of conservative Islamists who want her to be stoned. The organization's website has launched the 'holy war of topless' asking Arab women for public action in topless: 'There will be millions of Amina! Our breasts are more dangerous than your stones'. The young Tunisian woman, who last week had gone missing sparking fears that she had been jailed or forced to join a mental health institute, is now at home in Tunis and doing fine, her lawyer Bochra Belhaj Hmida has told the AFP news agency.
