Residents of the French city of Perpignan have launched a legal bid to block the construction of a new synagogue. The residents are objecting on various grounds, including that the synagogue is likely to be a target for terrorists and therefore a risk to the area. The old synagogue had become dilapidated and the Jewish community hopes to build a new, more secure synagogue closer to the city centre.
