Islamists in Algeria shouted anti-Semitic slogans at a rally celebrating the slaying of 12 people in Paris.

Several dozen men participated in the rally that took place Wednesday outside a mosque in the Belouizidad district of Algiers, the news site reported Thursday.

They shouted “strike France and the Jews,” “Allah is the greatest” and “Charlie is dead.” French authorities suspect the Jan. 7 attack on the offices of the Charlie Hebdo weekly was carried out by Islamists who targeted the publication for its satirical cartoons lampooning Islam.

Elsewhere in Algiers, Islamists celebrated the deadly attack with a dance party on the street near the Djamaa Lihoud mosque, reported.
