News the HP Doesn't Cover: More Jews Attacked in France

I guess it may be unreasonable to expect the Huffington Post to cover this news, since they aren't a Jewish or Israeli newspaper, but they do love to publish Jew-related news items:

Three Jews wearing kipot were attacked by 10 people in Villeurbanne, France, near Lyon, French Interior Minister Manuel Valls was quoted as saying on Sunday by the European Jewish Press.

Two of the victims were hospitalized. One victim sustained an open wound to the head, and another suffered a neck injury.

The attackers were described as being of North-African origin, and beat their Jewish victims with hammers and iron bars, an act denounced as "extremely serious" by French authorities. The attack occurred on Saturday.

Accordingly, Valls mobilized the police to search out and arrest those behind the attack.
The incident came after a March attack in Toulouse France, in which Mohamed Merah  killed three Jewish schoolchildren and a rabbi.

Merah admitted anti-Semetic motivations for his attack during a 30-hour gunbattle with police who besieged his Toulouse apartment.
