ATTACKERS launched two cars packed with petrol bombs at a synagogue in France’s south-western city of Toulouse on Monday night, causing damage but no casualties, officials said.

One car was set on fire and pushed by the other until it hit the door of the synagogue, at a time when about a dozen people were attending a class with a rabbi. The building caught fire but all those inside escaped unharmed.

Police found unexploded petrol bombs inside the second car, which did not catch fire. They said they were investigating the attack and had not made any arrests.

A Jewish group, the National Bureau for Vigilance against Anti-Semitism, condemned the attack.

Earlier, Interior Minister Michele Alliot-Marie met leaders of France’s Jewish and Muslim communities and security chiefs to deliver a message that the Gaza Strip conflict should not lead to violent acts in France.

Societe reported that the attack occurred around 21:40 when the rabbi was giving a lecture to an unspecified number of adults in the synagogue located in the residential district of Bagatelle.
