Vandals desecrated some 200 gravestones at a cemetery in Winnipeg in two attacks Sunday and Monday. The desecration came as B’nai Brith Canada reported that anti-Semitic incidents in Canada had increased by 18 percent in the first six months of 1999. The increase came after a 14 percent rise in such incidents in Canada in 1998.
