Update: an investigation has proven the incident is a result of a child from an upstairs balcony dropping a ball onto the elderly woman; more here.
A 79-year-old Jewish woman was wounded outside a Paris synagogue from a metal ball hurled at her head.
The victim of the attack Tuesday in the French capital’s 11th district was taken to hospital with some cranial damage and loss of blood. Her condition is stable, France Bleu reported Wednesday.
Witnesses outside the synagogue said they did not see from where the ball was hurled or by whom.
On Monday, a bowl full of water was hurled, possibly from an elevated residential apartment, at worshipers leaving the same synagogue.
