France shaken by outbreak of anti-Semitic violence and abuseThe problem was starkly underlined on Tuesday with the discovery of more than 90 graves in a Jewish cemetery in eastern France desecrated with swastikas and other abuse. “Whoever did this is not worthy of the French republic and will be punished,” declared President Emmanuel Macron as he paid homage at the site. “We’ll take action, we’ll apply the law and we’ll punish them.” Politicians from across the spectrum will join marches against anti-Semitism across France on Tuesday evening, including in Paris.
