France Jews: Two brothers attacked in Paris street

French police are investigating an assault on two Jewish brothers in a Paris suburb, in which the attackers allegedly shouted anti-Semitic abuse.

The eldest, 29, and his brother, 17, say one of the attackers was armed with a hacksaw and they both suffered cuts during the struggle.

They say they were harassed while driving through Bondy on Tuesday evening, wearing kippas.

Bondy is near Aulnay-sous-Bois, an area hit by anti-police rioting this month.

No suspects have been detained yet in connection with Tuesday’s assault.

Bondy is part of Seine-Saint-Denis district, north-eastern Paris, where violence erupted earlier this month because of the alleged rape of a young black man by police.

The man, called Theo, left hospital this week after emergency treatment. Violence also rocked some other suburbs.
