Rioting disrupts Paris memorial for Jewish woman allegedly killed by neighbor
Rioting erupted at a Paris memorial for a haredi Orthodox woman who is believed to have been pushed out of her third-floor apartment by a neighbor to her death.
An estimated crowd of 2,000, mostly French Jews, attended the rally Sunday outside the home of Sarah Halimi. The event became contentious when some young Jews, reported by Israel Radio to be from the Jewish Defense League, began arguing with Halimi's neighbors and reportedly threw objects at the homes and tried to break into them.
French riot police were called to the scene to disperse the demonstrators, who left after singing the national anthems of both France and Israel and waving Israeli flags, Israel Radio reported.
