Vandals of Jewish cemetery caught

POLICE have charged four teenagers in connection with damage caused to a Jewish cemetery in the western Slovak town of Bánovce nad Bebravou, where 34 tombstones were kicked down and swastikas drawn in the snow.

The attack on the cemetery took place in the evening of January 17 and the vandals revisited the site the next day.

The three 15-year-olds and one 16-year-old, who admitted to police that they sympathised with skinhead groups, were charged with hooliganism, damaging private property, and promoting fascism.

If found guilty, they face up to two years in jail.
