On July 4, 2012, a 17-year-old Frenchman was the victim of a violent anti-Semitic attack on a train from Lyon to Toulouse. The teenager is a student of Ozar Hatorah school in Toulouse, where three children and a family were killed by Mohamed Merah on March 19. A source close to the investigation said that the attackers noticed a chain around his neck. Aged about 18 years, the two suspects were arrested in an army recruitment office in Lyon. A police source told AFP that the two men, of North African origin, had no criminal record.

Why anyone is surprised about this attack is beyond me.
