British Jew Shot Dead in Antwerp

(Reuters) Moshe Yitzchak Naeh, 24, a British Orthodox Jew who lived in Belgium, was shot dead in Antwerp on Thursday amid concern about a rise in anti-Semitism following the stabbing of a Jewish youth in June. The victim, a well-known member of the Jewish community, was shot in the head on his way home from synagogue. He was not robbed, neighbors said. Antwerp has been home to a large community of Orthodox Jews for more than 700 years.
