Police said over the weekend that they are looking for people connected to a photomontage disseminated through Facebook which shows Rabbi Gilles Bernheim with a revolver pointing at his head. The picture shows Bernheim wearing a Star of David on his forehead.
A lighter labeled as containing Zyklon B - the compound used in Nazi gas chambers - is being held up to his nostrils.
