French media reported on Wednesday that a car explosion outside of a synagogue near Paris was not related to the terror attack at the Charlie Hebdo offices, which left 12 people dead and several others injured.

A car caught fire in the Paris suburb of Sarcelles on Wednesday near a synagogue, an event the city's mayor,  François Pupponi, called an "accident, not an attack," according to Metronews. 

The Sarcelles synagogue had been targeted over the summer by pro-Palestinian demonstrators who tried to set fire to the building in protest over Israel's policies in Gaza.
