Italian police arrest vandals of Jewish stores


ROME (JTA) — Police arrested two young neo-fascists for vandalizing Jewish-owned shops in Rome last month.

An announcement Monday said two members of the neo-fascist group called Militia were charged for sealing the shutters on more than a dozen shops, many of them owned by Jews, on the night of Jan. 21-22.

Near the shops, a banner reading "Boycott Israel!" was found, signed by "Militia."
