BERLIN (AP) — A 30-year-old German man has been found guilty of an attack on a Jewish restaurant three years ago in the eastern German city of Chemnitz in which the owner was injured and the restaurant damaged. The court ruled Wednesday that the man was found guilty of severe aggravated assault and breach of the peace. He was convicted of a one-year suspended prison sentence. The man was part of a group that attacked the restaurant, throwing cobblestones which injured the Jewish owner of the Schalom restaurant. The anti-Semitic attack was part of several days of far-right, anti-migrant riots following the fatal stabbing of a German man by a Syrian asylum-seeker in Chemnitz.
