France: Anti-Semitic attacker regrets not killing victim

The teenager who stabbed a Jewish man in the southern French city of Marseille said on Wednesday that he was ashamed he had not killed him. Politicians weighed in after a local Jewish leader suggested Jews should forgo wearing the kippa skullcap, which had served to identify the victim.
