Paris Area Synagogue Hit by Firebomb Attack

SAINT-DENIS, France (AP) - Two Molotov cocktails have been
hurled at a synagogue north of Paris.

No one was hurt in what French officials say was the latest attack in a new wave of anti-Jewish and anti-Muslim attacks over the violence in Gaza.

President Nicolas Sarkozy's office says he met with French religious leaders and reiterated the need to avoid "transposing" onto French soil a foreign conflict that France has been working to ease.

France has Western Europe's largest Jewish and Muslim populations, and Middle East tensions have in the past spilled over into vandalism or other incidents.
