Ukraine: Anti-Semitic mob attack near Jewish holy site

Via I 24 News:
At least four people were hospitalized after an angry mob of at least 30 people armed with sticks and knives attacked Jewish pilgrims Friday night in Ukraine's town of Uman.

The incident was reported by head of Ukraine's Jewish Committee Eduard Dolinsky in a Facebook post on Sunday.

According to local media reports, the pogrom-style attack began with a minor strife between a Jew and one of the local residents. The situation escalated as the Uman resident called in his friends to stage violent attacks on Jews, as reported.
