France: 10-year-old Jewish girl assaulted by classmates

Via BNVCA (National Bureau for Vigilance Against Anti-Semitism):

A ten-year-old child was violently assaulted by classmates at a primary school in the 18th arrondissement of Paris on the grounds of her Jewishness.

According to a complaint filed with the police by the girl Ness C. and her mother, the 10-year-old girl was subjected to insults, beatings and punchings several times and for several consecutive days.

The girl was taken to hospital suffering from pain in her abdomen and ribs. She was signed off from school for ten days.

The BNVCA asked the police to make every effort to ascertain whether the child had been attacked on anti-Semitic grounds and if so for this fact to be taken into account in the course of the investigation.

The mother complained that the school had failed to protect her child and to sanction the young offenders.

The Paris Rectorate was contacted by the BNVCA and is investigating the matter.  The Rectorate has acceded to the request by the mother for the child to be transferred to another school.
