A Holocaust Survivor Was Murdered In Paris And Police Say The Motive May Have Been Anti-Semitism

No information was available about the other suspect besides that he and his accused accomplice are both Muslims. "To attack a Jew, it is to attack France and the values that establish the foundation of the nation".

Responding to the prosecutor's recognition of the anti-Semitic nature of the attack, Knoll told i24NEWS that "it was what we lacked in this very hard, complicated puzzle".

Halimi's neighbor, 28-year old Kobili Traore, was arrested the next day, who, according to prosecutors, allegedly recited verses from the Koran before throwing her out of the window, shouting: "I've killed the Shaitan [devil in Arabic]".

France's half-a-million-plus Jewish community is the largest in Europe but has been hit by a wave of emigrations to Israel in the past two decades, partly due to the emergence of a virulent strain of anti-Semitism in predominantly immigrant neighbourhoods. In February, the murder was ruled an anti-Semitic crime.

The apartment in the 11th arrondisement of Paris where Mireille Knoll lived.

Two men have been jailed in the case, according to the judicial official, who spoke only on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the news media.

"Why we are so shaken by this crime are obvious, but one reason for the additional emotion is that she seemed like someone who could have been any of our grandmothers, a nice older woman with no reason why she would have been a target", said Mr. Ejnes. "Until now, I haven't felt anti-Semitism in France". In January, a Jewish High School girl's face was slashed on her way home and an arsonist burned a kosher grocery. In the round up, "police herded some 13,000 people - including more than 4,000 children - into a stadium and shipped them to the Auschwitz death camp in Nazi German-occupied Poland".
