The Jewish cemetery at Halmeiu, in the district of Marmorosz, was broken into by vandals during the night and nine gravestones were pulled out of the ground. Attempts were also made to open the grave of the Jewish banker, Andreas Weiss, who was murdered recently, and it is suggested that the vandalism may be connected with the murder.
