Košice graveyard vandals all juveniles

Police have announced that three boys aged 13 and 11 were responsible for last week’s vandalism of a Košice Jewish graveyard, in which 135 tombstones were toppled and damages reached Sk3 million ($65,000). While the boys could not explain why they had done what they did, teachers at the local elementary school they attend said all three were among the less well-behaved students, and would get low marks for behaviour as a result of the attack.
