France Beefs Up Security After Paris Synagogue Attack

France stepped up security on Monday, a day after protesters demonstrating against Israel's operation in Gaza tried to storm two Paris synagogues.

According to the AFP news agency, President Francois Hollande warned that he did not want to see "the Israeli-Palestinian conflict imported into France" after two Jewish men were hurt in clashes that erupted on Sunday.
