Gagny, France - Arsonists set fire to a Jewish school north of Paris that had been badly damaged in another arson attack in 2003. No one was injured.
The overnight fire, which targeted a ground floor office at the Merkaz Hatorah school in suburban Gagny, was quickly extinguished. Two other small fires were set nearby. Police opened an investigation.
A November 2003 fire at Merkaz Hatorah destroyed around 32,300 square feet of the school. At the time, Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy said the arson attack had “an anti-Semitic and obviously racist connotation.”
