French Jewish groups call for new protests for release of Iran Jews

PARIS, June 25 (AFP) - French Jewish organizations on Friday called for renewed protests nationwide to demand the release of 13 Iranian Jews whose arrest on charges of spying has provoked an outcry.

They said that 13 public figures would chain themselves in front of the Iranian embassy in Paris on June 29 to denounce the arrest of the 13 Iranian Jews.

Similar protests are planned across France.

The French League Against Racism and Anti-Semitism also urged the French government not to receive any representatives of the Iranian state as long as the 13 Jews have not been freed.

Protests have been held in several countries this week to denounce Iran's action against the 13 Iranian citizens.

France has the third biggest Jewish community in the world -- estimated at 700,000 people -- after Israel and the United States.
