A Jewish dance group was attacked with stones by a group of children during a performance at a street festival in the Germany city of Hanover, police said yesterday.

After one dancer suffered a leg injury, the group cancelled its performance. The teenagers also used a megaphone to shout anti-Semitic slurs during the Saturday afternoon attack. Police said the incident is under investigation and that they do not have an exact number of attackers yet.

A police spokesman said there were several Muslim immigrant youths among the attackers.
