Attackers of Jewish couple on Paris suburb in 2014 to be charged with antisemitism

A French judge is to try five men with antisemitic motivation during a vicious attack on a Jewish couple in the Paris suburb of Créteil in 2014.

On December 1, 2014, the couple was an attacked in a Créteil flat and the woman raped. The flat was burgled by attackers armed with a sawn-off shotgun.
