MAN BEATEN FOR FLYING ISRAELI FLAG
A KURDISH man was attacked by a mob on Sunday night after hanging an Israeli flag from the window of his apartment. Ismail Babak, 38, was lured into a side street in Malmö, southern Sweden, after confronting the vandals. Up to a dozen men attacked him with glass bottles and iron bars, he said. Police, who questioned him before he was taken to hospital, may investigate the incident as a hate crime.
Mr Babak said: “I don’t want to take the flag down. If it’s not possibletokeep it in my window, I will tattoo the Israeli flag on my body.”
