Download PDF for this date

A Jewish cemetery outside the Argentine capital that suffered extensive anti-Semitic vandalism last year was sprayed with bullets from unidentified passersby on the night of April 9, the Latin American Jewish Congress has reported.

Two spent 9-mm bullets and shell casings were found at the gates of the cemetery in Berazategui. The judge investigating the incident went to the scene and characterized the attack as “a criminal deed with racial discrimination.”
