Jewish Center in France Set on Fire

Attackers set fire to a Jewish community center in southeast France overnight, causing slight damage to the entry hall, police said Tuesday.

Several walls were blackened by flames, but there were no injuries. It was not clear who carried out the attack, but officials note that such violence tends to coincide with rising Mideast tensions.
