UK: Jews targeted in neo-Nazi attack

Officers were called following reports of a disturbance at Markfield Recreation Ground on 21 June in which a free community music festival was taking place. 
Footage has emerged of the disorder which occurred during the "unprovoked attack", which saw rocks and fireworks being hurled. 
A 24-year-old Polish man was stabbed during the incident. He was taken by London Ambulance Service to an east London hospital where his condition is not believed to be serious. 
Members of the local Orthodox Jewish community were also targeted by the mob. 

One man has also been arrested on suspicion of racially and religiously aggravated common assault, after he allegedly pulled a kippah (skull cap) from a man's head.
No one has been arrested in connection with the stabbing.
