Unidentified vandals defaced headstones in a Jewish cemetery in New Zealand, with swastikas, and anti-Semitic and anti-Israel graffiti.

More than 20 graves, all more than 125 years old, were vandalized with black spray-paint between Thursday night and Friday morning at an Auckland Jewish cemetery, according to the New Zeland Herald. Fourteen headstones had large black swastikas sprayed on them. Another two had anti-Israel expletives scrawled on them.



The cemetery has one security camera and its footage will be reviewed in the hope of catching the vandals, the website site NZCity reported.

Work is underway to remove the paint on the defaced headstones and the attack comes as officials have been planning tighter security at the site, according to the Herald.
