Jewish boy beaten into coma in Paris

A 17-year-old Jewish boy was severely beaten in Paris on Saturday evening in what family and the authorities are calling a serious act of anti-Semitism.

According to a French Jewish group, the boy was surrounded by some 15 people while walking home in a largely Jewish neighborhood. He was easily identifiable as a Jew as he was wearing a kippa. The gang proceeded to beat the youth – some reports said with iron rods – until he was unconscious. He later slipped into a coma from which he woke on Tuesday.

French police told the Associated Press that they had questioned five people in connection to the attack, but that the investigation is still ongoing.
