The Paris campaign headquarters of leading French nationalist presidential candidate Marine Le Pen was attacked with a gasoline bomb last night.
ABC News reports:
The Paris fire department says no one was injured in the incident overnight Thursday and the blaze was quickly extinguished. The device hit an insurance office on the ground floor where Le Pen’s campaign is based.
An investigation is underway. Police say vandals also scrawled graffiti targeting Le Pen’s anti-immigration National Front party.
Le Pen said on France-2 television Thursday that she suspects extreme-left activists in the incident, but said that her campaign has not been contacted by investigators.
Recently, Le Pen has been in the news for condemning Trump’s attack upon the Syrian government. She was also denounced by the Israeli government for her remarks about restoring French pride and moving away from historical guilt associated with the Holocaust.
