A Jewish man wearing a kippa skullcap was stabbed in the eastern French city of Strasbourg Friday by a man who was promptly arrested, police and Jewish community sources said.

The victim, who is in his 60s, was stabbed in the abdomen outside his home in the city's Jewish quarter, Strasbourg's chief rabbi Rene Gutman told AFP. His injuries were not life-threatening, Gutman added.

Police have not commented on the motive for the attack.
