Jewish Teens Sprayed with Tear Gas in Paris

Two visibly Jewish teenagers wearing kippahs report being sprayed with tear gas on Saturday night in Sarcelles, a northern suburb of the French capital of Paris. The incident was reported Monday by the French organization National Bureau of Vigilance against Anti-Semitism (BNVCA), and relayed by JTA.

According to BNVCA, the attack was filmed by security cameras in the area. The attackers reportedly consisted of a group of 8- to 17-year-old hoodlums of "North African origin," likely hinting at Muslim immigrants.
