ATHENS — Vandals broke into the Jewish cemetery in the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki, causing minor damage.

The vandals cut through the fence of the cemetery and, once inside, smashed some vases and ornaments and knocked over several headstones and plaques, David Saltiel, president of the Thessaloniki Jewish community, said Friday.

Police had been to the scene and were investigating, he said.
