Fire at French Kosher Market Targeted by Anti-Jewish Vandals

Tuesday, 09 January 2018 07:37 AM

PARIS (AP) — French officials say a fire broke out at a kosher market south of Paris that was vandalized with anti-Semitic graffiti last week.

No one is said to have been hurt, but the fire damaged much of the Promo & Stock store.

Antoine Besme of the regional prosecutor's office said authorities believe the fire Tuesday in the suburb of Creteil was of a criminal nature, because the store's protective shutters had been forced open.

Besme told The Associated Press that a preliminary investigation was opened, and that authorities are working to see if there is a link to last week's vandalism.

The fire raised concerns because of the anti-Semitic graffiti, and because the fire broke out three years after a deadly Islamic extremist attack on a kosher market in Paris.
