Two Jewish brothers attacked in Paris after Brussels shooting

Two brothers aged 18 and 23 were attacked while going to evening prayers Saturday at the Chaaré Tsion synagogue in Créteil just outside Paris. The two attackers, who used knuckledusters fled – one on foot, the other on a bike. The victims were hospitalized but are not in danger. The attack took place hours after the shooting in Belgium which killed an Israeli couple.  One of the four victims was a Frenchwoman. French interior minister Bernard Cazeneuve ordered security tightened around Jewish centers. President Francois Hollande called for “mobilization to ensure that French Jews feel in perfect security.”
