Several anti-Semitic incidents occurred in and around Paris. Late Saturday night, attackers hurled a Molotov cocktail against the wall of a synagogue in the 20th district, an area inhabited by large concentrations of Jews and Muslims of North African descent. The next day, in the nearby 12th district, religious leaders discovered signs of an attempted break-in at a Jewish place of worship. In another weekend incident, in the suburb of Epinay-sur-Seine, vandals smashed the windows of a Jewish school.
