A group claimed responsibility for bombing the grave of the former leader of Germany’s Jewish community, Berlin police said. The group said in a letter to police that it had carried out the bombing to protest the recent naming of a Berlin street for Heinz Galinski, the community’s leader from 1988 until his death in 1992. Berlin officials, who are investigating the authenticity of the letter, offered a $12,000 reward for information leading to the bombers’ arrest.
