Vandals Hit Munich Jewish Cemetery

Vandals desecrated the old Jewish cemetery in Munich last week.

The incident is believed to have occurred Aug. 26, according to local police, who reported the incident two days later.

The police said 15 gravestones were overturned and others damaged.

On the same day as the desecration at the cemetery, a burglary was committed at the Munich apartment of the cemetery guard.

Police are investigating a possible connection between the two cases.
