Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said in a statement late Tuesday that investigators suspect the incident Monday in the town of Sarcelles was motivated by anti-Semitism. Collomb said police are doing “everything” to identify the perpetrators, described by French media as teenagers who ran away after tripping and kicking the boy.
Macron tweeted: “Each time a citizen is attacked because of his age, appearance or religion, it is the whole nation that is attacked.”
Collomb and Jewish leaders have said the number of anti-Semitic acts in France has risen this month after a drop in previous years.
