Unknown vandals scrawled anti-Semitic graffiti on a building housing the offices of the Jewish Agency in St. Petersburg earlier this week, the Jewish group said on Thursday.

Officials said they were shocked when they discovered a swastika and text that said Jews should be deported "Buchenwald," a former Nazi concentration, last Sunday. There are some 100,000 Jews living the Russian city.
