The mayor of Paris announced that security would be stepped up at Jewish institutions in the capital. Following the arson of a Jewish social center over the weekend, Bertrand Delanoe said Monday that additional video surveillance cameras would be installed at buildings frequented by the Jewish community, and that he would ask the city council to increase its security budget by a third to protect Jewish institutions. Security systems would be improved around Jewish nurseries, schools, synagogues and old age homes, Delanoe said in a statement. In addition, a campaign will be launched early next month to sensitize citizens to fight anti-Semitism, racism and discrimination.
