French boy, aged 8, beaten up for wearing kippa in anti-Semitic attack

An eight-year-old boy wearing the Jewish skullcap has become the latest victim of an anti-Semitic attack in France, sparking an angry response from President Emmanuel Macron.

Two teenagers beat the boy up in the northern Paris suburb of Sarcelles on Tuesday, in what prosecutors said appeared to be attack motivated by the child’s religion.

It is the latest in a string of assaults that has worried France’s large Jewish community, coming three weeks after a kosher supermarket in the Paris suburbs was gutted in a suspected arson attack.
