A firebomb thrown into a former synagogue in central Romania caused minor damage, a local Jewish watchdog group said.

The firebomb was aimed at the wooden part of the floor of the former synagogue of Sighisoara, the Center for Monitoring and Combating anti-Semitism in Romania said in a statement Tuesday about the recent attack.

The building, which has been converted into a cultural center, is in proximity to the site of an earlier attack in Ploiesti, near Bucharest, where a local synagogue’s windows were shattered when vandals pelted them with stones, wrote the watchdog group’s director, Maximillian Marco Katz.

Police were investigating both incidents.
