The number of anti-Semitic incidents documented in 2012 by Austria's Jewish community has doubled from the previous year, the leader of Vienna's Jewish community said.

Oskar Deutsch told the Kurier newspaper that the Jewish community registered 135 such incidents last year, compared to 71 in 2011.

Still, Jews increasingly are immigrating to Austria from neighboring Hungary because of anti-Semitism in that country, he said.
