April 01, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

A gunman opened fire on a kosher butcher shop in southern France--the fourth apparent anti-Semitic attack over the weekend--drawing pledges for increased security at Jewish sites and appeals for religious tolerance.

No one was hurt in the attack Saturday evening in the town of L'Union, near Toulouse, officials said.

The owner of the shop was inside when a gunman fired two shots and sped off in a car, officials said.
