Muslim Youths Stone Jewish Dance Troupe in Germany
The youths shouted “Juden Raus” (Jews Out) as they attacked the dancers of the Chaverim (“Friends” in Hebrew) dance troupe last weekend.
German police suspect a group of Muslim children and teenagers were responsible for attacking a Jewish dance troupe during their performance at a street festival in Hannover last weekend.
Hannover police spokesman Thorsten Schiewe said the teenagers used a megaphone to shout anti-Semitic slurs before hurling stones at the troupe, in an attack which wounded one of the dancers.
Police were interrogating two immigrant teenagers, 15 and 19, in the incident. It was not yet clear whether the attack had been organized in advance.
The dance group canceled their performance after the incident.
