A 19-year-old Michigan State University student is recovering Tuesday after surgery overnight for a broken jaw his family says stems from a brutal hate crime.

Two men at a party early Sunday attacked Zachary Tennen, a journalism sophomore at MSU, after asking whether he was Jewish, his mother, Tina Tennen said Tuesday.

They raised their arms in a Nazi salute, chanting "Heil Hitler" and then knocked Tennen unconscious, she said.
