A Jewish boy from Paris was beaten and robbed outside his school by six young men in an anti-Semitic attack, the Times of Israel website reports today (July 11, 2015).
The incident occurred on July 7 in the French capital's 19th arrondissement (administrative district), near the Gare du Nord train station, according to a report published by the National Bureau for Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism.
The 13-year-old boy -- who was not named -- was followed by six men of African descent as he exited the school while wearing a kippa, the report said. One of his aggressors shouted: "Take that, dirty Jew" while the group was hitting the boy. One of the young men also stole the boy's cellular phone before fleeing the scene.
The boy was taken to a hospital where he received stitches to wounds on his head.
