Jewish man attacked in France

It has emerged that a Jewish man was attacked in a Paris metro station on his way home from synagogue during Rosh Hashanah.

The victim, 52, was beaten by two attackers and left unconscious on the subway floor.

French antisemitism watchdog, the BNVCA, believes that the incident was driven by hate because the victim was reading a book by the chief rabbi of Paris when the attack happened.

The attackers have not yet been identified.
