A suspected arson attack on a French kosher grocery store has revived anti-Semitism fears.
The incident took place in Créteil to the south east of Paris in Frances Val-de-Marne department.
The fire at the store Promo & Destock in Mont-Mesly in Créteil was signaled to the authorities at around 5 am on Tuesday morning. One or more of the individuals involved in the incident smashed the window pane before setting the store on fire.
The store was completely gutted in the fire, with the shelves along the aisles where the fire is believed to have been started blackened and charred, an AFP reporter said. There is a lot of damage, Créteils prosecutor Laure Beccuau told AFP, adding that investigators do not believe the fire was accidental.
On January 3rd, two Jewish stores in the area including the one set on fire on Tuesday were tagged with five swastikas. The second store was also slightly damaged in the fire.
