Zurich knifing apparently anti-Semitism

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

A Jewish man was attacked in Zurich in what appeared to be an anti-Semitic incident.

Reports say the 60-year-old victim was lightly wounded in the neck in Tuesday’s daytime attack by a knife-wielding assailant.

The attacker, described as a young man who spoke with a foreign accent, fled after the victim fought back.

Police say anti-Semitism may have been the sole motive since the victim reported that his attacker addressed him as a Jew.
