Paris, France - Hundreds of demonstrators from the French Jewish community held a memorial rally on Sunday outside the house of an Orthodox Jewish doctor who was murdered by her neighbor last week, Israel Radio reported.

Jewish youth, some associated with the far-right Jewish Defense League group, were among the crowds outside the apartment of the victim identified as Sarah Halimi. Halimi was reportedly hurled by a Muslim neighbor to her death from the window of her third-floor apartment last Monday.

French riot police were called to disperse the gathering of demonstrators on Sunday after tensions arose between nearby residents and the Jewish youth, some of whom reportedly hurled objects at neighbors and attempted to enter their homes.

The masses dispersed after participating demonstrators sang the national anthems of both France and Israel and waved Israeli flags.

According to the Paris-based publication Le Parisien, local police last week apprehended a main suspect in the murder. The man, aged 27, was the victim’s neighbor and more at JPost
