Molotov cocktail thrown at synagogue in France

Latest update : 2009-01-12

A Molotov cocktail was thrown at a synagogue in the Paris suburb of Saint-Denis, causing an adjacent Jewish restaurant to catch fire. No damage was done to the synagogue.

AFP - A Molotov cocktail was thrown at a synagogue in a Paris suburb Sunday, causing the facade of an adjoining Jewish restaurant to briefly catch fire, an anti-Semitism monitoring group said.
  
"The Molotov cocktail did not cause any damage to the synagogue, but the window of the adjoining restaurant was broken and a wall blackened" by flames, said the non-governmental National Bureau for Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism.
  
A witness of the attack on the synagogue in the Paris suburb of Saint-Denis said three people fled the scene, the group added.
  
French Interior Minister Michele Alliot-Marie said in statement that all efforts would be taken "to find the perpetrators of the attack and have them answer before justice for this intolerable act."
