Concern over threats to Paris synagogues

Police have opened an inquiry after two synagogues in Paris received a threatening letter, a source close to the probe said Monday, making no link to a shooting at a Jewish school that killed four.

The letter, reading "You are the people of Satan, Hell is waiting for you," was received at one of the synagogues during the weekend and the other on Monday morning, the source said.

Monday's attack saw a scooter-riding gunman shoot dead three children and a 30-year-old religious studies teacher at the school in the southwestern city of Toulouse.

The gunman opened fire on a crowd as children arrived for class, then charged onto school grounds. A fifth victim, a 17-year-old boy, was left in a critical condition. The gunman escaped.

Rights groups and the government denounced the attack as anti-Semitic.
