Man wearing Jewish symbol stabbed near Paris

Masked thieves who attacked a young man east of Paris to steal his car repeatedly stabbed him after noticing he was wearing a Jewish symbol, French Interior Minister Michele Alliot-Marie said. Alliot-Marie condemned the "revolting attack" in the suburban town of Fontenay-sous-Bois and said authorities are working to find the perpetrators. The ministry said in a statement Friday that the attackers shouted anti-Semitic threats at the man as they stabbed him four times with a knife in the Thursday evening attack. It did not provide details on the man's condition.
