Dozens of headstones were knocked over at a Jewish cemetery in Saint Louis, Missouri, several reports said on Tuesday, revealing an incident that reportedly took place over the weekend. Local police has opened an investigation into the matter and suspects that the vandalism was carried out by an organization. Police have yet to classify the act as an hate crime and have not made any arrests.

In an unrelated incident that occurred on Monday morning, a Jewish community center in Wisconsin was evacuated by security forces after it received a bomb threat for the second time in 2017.
