Anti-Semitic incidents in Germany have skyrocketed by 100 percent for the first six months of 1994 over the same period last year, the World Jewish Congress has reported.

German police reported 701 anti-Semitic attacks in the first half of 1994, compared with 343 in the same period of 1993.

Most of these incidents have taken place in the southwestern state of Bavaria.

Official figures show that 121 crimes aimed at Jews or at Jewish targets have been solved by investigators.
