Jewish dance group attacked in Germany

A JEWISH dance group was attacked with stones by a group of children and teenagers during a performance at a street festival in the Germany city of Hannover.
One dancer suffered a leg injury and the group then cancelled their performance.
The teenagers also used a megaphone to shout anti-Semitic slurs during the Saturday afternoon attack, Hannover police spokesman Thorsten Schiewe said.
Police said the incident is under investigation and that they do not have an exact number of attackers yet.
Mr Schiewe said there were several Muslim immigrant youths among the attackers.
Two suspects, a 14-year-old and a 19-year-old, were being questioned, he said.
Alla Volodarska, whose Progressive Jewish Community of Hannover group held the performance, said that members were still in shock.
"What happened is just so awful. The teenagers started throwing stones the moment our dance group was announced, even before they started dancing." LinkHere
