VILNIUS - Lithuania's Jewish organizations on Monday condemned an apparent neo-Nazi attack in which a pig's head was left at the entrance of a synagogue by unknown perpetrators.  

"The Lithuanian Jewish community and the Religious Community of Lithuanian Jews judge this as Nazi provocation aimed at insulting the ethnic and religious feelings of Lithuanian Jews," their leaders, Simonas Alperavicius and Chief Rabbi Chaim Burstein, said in a statement.  

The statement said that the pig's head was found on Saturday outside a synagogue in Lithuania's second city Kaunas.
