French police discovered the charred body of a Holocaust survivor covered with stab wounds after a fire broke out in her Paris apartment on Friday. The local Jewish community fears the murder was motivated by anti-Semitism, reported Israel Hayom. Forensic teams worked over the weekend to gather evidence in an investigation that French government officials are following closely, due to the sensitivity of the incident. The fire was reportedly lit at five different points in the apartment, pointing to arson. On Monday, French authorities said that two suspects had been taken into custody, and that they are planning to charge them with premeditated murder of a vulnerable person for anti-Semitic motives. They will face charges of “murder related to the victim’s religion, real or imagined,” said a French judicial source, according to AFP.
