Lyon
- It was 8 pm when a man living in the 7th arrondissement of Lyon decided to go out to look for food. While passing on the Place Gabriel-Péri, this man who was wearing a kippah was verbally attacked by five individuals who insulted him. “Dirty Jew!" before ordering her to leave.

The victim demanded an explanation and was then kicked and punched. A CRS crew who was on a nearby security mission saw what was happening.
