A student supporter of Israel at Ottawa’s Carleton University and his Israeli engineering student roommate say they were attacked by a group of people, including one person swinging a machete, near a Gatineau, Que., bar early Monday.

Nick Bergamini, 22, said he and Mark Klibanov, 20, were leaving a downtown Gatineau bar at about 1:45 a.m. when a group of approximately 10 men began yelling in English and Arabic that they were Zionists and Jews.

The two men walked across the Chaudiere Bridge to Ottawa and the crowd surrounding them dispersed about five minutes later.

Klibanov, 20, said the machete missed the back of his friend’s head by about a foot.

Police on Monday did not immediately provide details on the alleged attack.
