Scores of Headstones Broken at Jewish Cemetery in Philadelphia



A Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia became the latest victim of vandalism Sunday, when anywhere between dozens to hundreds of headstones were broken and toppled in an incident Israel decried as "shocking" and as "a source of worry."

The second incident of vandalism in a Jewish cemetery in as many weeks, the incident in Mt. Carmel Jewish cemetery comes a week after hundreds of Jewish graves were desecrated St. Louis in what many took as a continuation of anti-Jewish incidents, including numerous bombs scares at Jewish centers.

"The Philadelphia Jewish cemetery desecration is shocking and a source of worry," Foreign Ministry Spokesman Emanuel Nahshon said in a statement.
