Jewish Family Attacked, Robbed in Paris Suburb; Targeted Since "They Were Jewish,Have Money"

A French Jewish family was assaulted and robbed in their suburban Paris home yesterday by three masked men of African descent with handguns, the Times of Israel website reports today (July 16, 2015).

A report by the National Bureau for Vigilance Against anti-Semitism (BNVCA) said the family -- the parents and their daughter -- suffered from serious wounds that required all three to be hospitalized.

BNVCA said the perpetrators told the family they had targeted their home because "they were Jewish and have money."

The perpetrators stole 2,500 euros (about $2,740), a Mercedes car, and keys to the family's jewelry shop in Paris' 10th arrondissement (district).
