10 Turkish youths attack Jewish youths in Belgium

Ten teenagers of Turkish origin were sentenced to 30 hours of community service for attacking a group of Jewish youths in Belgium, officials said Tuesday. A group of orthodox Jewish teenagers on a school trip to a former coal mine in the northeastern town of Beringen on Thursday were confronted by youths who threw stones and shouted anti-Semitic slogans. Police intervened and detained the local youths for a night. They were then sentenced to community service over the year-end holidays, said police spokesman Marc Rubens.
