The ministry said that five members of the girl’s family in the eastern city of Beskan were sent to Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina, on Saturday morning.
The ministry said, “This expulsion from the national arena is a result of unacceptable behavior on behalf of the family in August, especially the beating and shaving of a teenage girl who was in love with a young Serbian man of another religion.”
It added that the girl, a minor, would be taken care of by social services and would reach the right of residence in France when she reached the majority.
French media reported in August that a 17-year-old Bosnian Muslim woman was beaten by her family in Besançon and her hair was forcibly cut as she wanted to marry a 20-year-old Serbian Christian.
Bosnian and Serb forces fought a war in the 1990s that resulted in thousands of civilian deaths.
