Headstones at a Jewish cemetery in Manchester, Britain, were vandalized in what local police call "a sickening act of anti-Semitism," according to a report in The Guardian.
Vandals wrecked 14 headstones at the Jewish cemetery in the Charlestown area of Manchester on Wednesday, it reported.
“This is a sickening act of anti-Semitism which we are taking very seriously. I believe this was a deliberate and targeted attack and there is no place for such abhorrent behavior in our communities," policeman Wasim Chaudhry was quoted by The Guardian as saying.
