PARIS (Feb. 16)
Vandals devastated a Jewish community center at St. German El Laye near Paris Monday. Community leaders estimate the damage in tens of thousands of Francs but said religious services will be resumed Friday. Torah scrolls were torn, prayer books were desecrated, furniture was broken and anti-Semitic slogans were daubed on the walls. Mayor Michel Perricard, who visited the scene, said the police have been ordered to use every resource to track down the vandals.
