‘Hooded individuals’ throw firebomb at kosher supermarket in Paris suburb, reportedly injuring one; three others suffer panic attacks. Motives for attack not immediately clear
It is as yet unclear whether the attack is connected to the publication of caricatures of Mohammed in a French newspaper.
The Sipa news agency says that a small explosion was set off by two hooded individuals dressed in black who entered the store, Naouri Sarcelles, around 10:30 am GMT, citing an unnamed police official and a Jewish organization.

They placed a small package inside the store and fled after throwing a rock through the window, the police official said. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not allowed to speak publicly about the investigation.
One of the injured was said to be treated for wounds to his arms and legs from the explosion and broken glass. The three others suffered panic attacks.
Sammy Ghozlan, president of the National Bureau of Vigilance against anti-Semitic acts (BNVCAA), said the two assailants, who had their faces covered, threw a “grenade in the supermarket.”
Representative Council of French Jewish Institutions (CRIF) President Richard Prasquier related the details of the incident to the media but also had no knowledge of any motive for the attack.
“There was a Molotov cocktail thrown against the store. It happened around noon,” Moshe Cohen-Sabban, President of the Jewish communities of Val d’Oise told AFP.
He added: Many people go to the store at this time of year to stock up for Yom Kippur next week.”
Sometimes called “Little Jerusalem,” Sarcelles, north of Paris, with 60,000 residents is home to a large Jewish community.
