A leading French journalist has been assaulted by pro-Israel vigilantes as a mob tried to storm the offices of the country’s national news agency in Paris.
David Perrotin, who currently writes for the news site BuzzFeed, was placed under protection after being attacked by around 12 masked men brandishing batons on Thursday night.
All were linked to the Jewish Defence League (JDL), a notoriously violent group that was protesting against Agence France Presse’s (AFP) coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

This seems peculiar and convenient. He was taking pictures the whole time but produces very few circumstantial ones?
