Officials filed preliminary charges Monday against five youths suspected of vandalizing nearly 200 tombstones at a cemetery in northern France, judicial officials said. Police caught the suspects - four minors and a 21-year old college student - in the act as they broke and painted tombstones in the Saint-Marie cemetery early Sunday morning. Police said 180 tombs were vandalized, including 44 in the Jewish section of the cemetery.
