LAKEWOOD - Security will be stepped up at Jewish communities across Ocean County today in response to the recent attacks against Jewish centers in France.

Toms River and Lakewood police say they will be increasing patrols near Jewish schools and synagogues.

The move comes after an alleged gunman who claims he has links to al-Qaida carried out three deadly attacks in France. He's accused of killing three Jewish schoolchildren, a rabbi and three paratroopers.
