Despite Marine Le Pen's efforts to modernize her party, France's top court provided a reminder of its past - it confirmed on Tuesday the conviction and her father for describing the Nazi gas chambers as a "detail" of history, and reaffirmed a 30,000 euro fine against him.

Le Pen's body guard and her entourage formed a protective ring around her before riot police cut a corridor for her to leave.

Quoted by the newspaper, the public prosecutor in Grenoble, Jean-Yves Coquillat, said that "we must remain cautious regarding the motives of the attacker".

University president Georges Haddad tweeted his condemnation of "this odious act" and said he would seek an investigation.

The incident comes with France on edge after a jihadist rampage in the southwest last week, where a 25-year-old radicalised gunman killed four people, including a policeman who took the place of a hostage in a supermarket siege. The president said Knoll was murdered "because she was Jewish", by a killer who did not value life.

That officer, Arnaud Beltrame, was remembered in a national ceremony in Paris on Wednesday. Crif's leader told far-right and far-left groups not to attend the rally. She has sought to distance herself from anti-Semitism that stained her party in the past, instead focusing anger on immigrants and Islamic extremists.
