PARIS — France's interior minister says that two Jewish men have been attacked as they left a synagogue in the Paris area.
Bernard Caseneuve ordered police around France to increase security at Jewish houses of worship and other Jewish establishments, according to a statement Sunday.
There were no immediate details on the Saturday night attack on two men leaving the synagogue in Creteil, southeast of Paris.
The attack came hours after a deadly attack on the Jewish Museum of Brussels that left three people, including an Israeli couple, dead and a fourth seriously injured. Belgian police have arrested a suspect and were searching for a second.
