Thousands of protesters joined a demonstration in central Paris on Sunday to protest the recent decision by a French court  to absolve the 2017 murderer of Sarah Halimi of criminal responsibility because he took cannabis before he killed her.

The main demonstration was held at Paris’s Place Du Trocadero, while hundreds of protesters demonstrated at the same time in Tel Aviv, London, Rome, New York, Miami, Los Angeles and other cities in France.

In April 2017, Kobili Traoré, a 27-year-old Muslim man, violently beat Halimi, his 65-year-old Jewish neighbor, while screaming “Allahu akhbar” and then threw her out of her third-floor window.

KAN's Mark Weiss spoke with Gil Taieb, the Vice President of CRIFF, the umbrella organization of the French Jewish community.
