Anti-Semitic sentiment spreads across Europe

  • Clashes broke out at a banned pro-Gaza demonstration in Paris on Saturday, with tear gas deployed by riot police after protesters threw stones and other missiles.
  • France, which has western Europe's largest Muslims and Jewish populations, banned a 3,000-strong protest, fearing a wave of anti-Semitic attacks.
