Berlin mayor condemns attack on Jewish high-school students

Berlin Mayor Klaus Wowereit on Thursday condemned an attack on five Jewish high-school students, calling it "intolerable." The five students, who ranged from 15 to 17 years old, were on their way home Wednesday in downtown Berlin when a group of four "punks" set a dog upon them while shouting anti-Semitic slogans, police said in a statement. The dog chased a 15-year-old, who managed to run inside a bakery and escape injury. Witnesses called police, who took all four suspects into custody and captured the dog before anyone was harmed.
