Did you miss the news of this early morning? We have concocted a recap 'to help you see more clearly.

From 311 in 2017 in France, anti-Semitic acts jumped to 541 in 2018, a rise of 74%, said Monday the Minister of the Interior Christophe Castaner after several anti-Jewish acts recently committed in Paris and Essonne. Calling this act "an attack on hope," he said the government would not let anything happen. "By attacking a cult, attacking the memory of Ilan Halimi, it is the Republic that is attacked," said the Minister, who also spoke of the "attacks on Catholic churches" .

"Make our planet great again" but also "roped first", it's him. Ismail Emelien, who announced Monday his departure from the Elysee, has embodied better than anyone the disruption with Emmanuel Macron he accompanied, still in the shadows, the beginnings of En Marche! Until the exercise of power. Around Emmanuel Macron, 31-year-old Ismaël Emelien was the creative and innovative counterpart of the manager Alexis Kohler, the secretary general of the Elysée. A complementary trio which, amputated by the special adviser, loses salt. Ismail Emelien thus defined his position apart alongside the head of state: "offer options and the president decides".

The accident is spectacular. "A train of @ T2_RATP rammed a stationary train and derailed" near the station Jacques-Henri Lartigue, in Issy-les-Moulineaux, Monday night, said the city on his Twitter account. "A victim is in serious condition and 11 others are slightly injured," said a firefighter spokesman to AFP, while the intervention of relief had ended. Nine of the victims were transported to emergency hospital services, he said.
