Jewish Holocaust Survivor,85,Murdered in Paris; Her Body Had 11 Stab Wounds, Home Set Ablaze

Two men were arrested today (March 26, 2018) over yesterday's killing of an 85-year-old Jewish woman -- a Holocaust survivor -- whose stabbed body was found after her Paris apartment was set ablaze, according to the Times of Israel website.

An autopsy conducted on  the woman -- who had lived alone -- identified her as Mirelle Kanol. Her charred body had at least 11 stab wounds.

A forensic examination of the apartment showed that an arsonist started a fire in at least five distinct areas of that space, a report said.

An anti-Semitic watchdog initially said  the case appeared to be an anti-Semitic hate crime, but later said  there was no immediate evidence of anti-Semitism.
