The World Zionist Organization has filed a complaint with the police against vandalism carried out over Friday and Saturday nights at the gravesite of the founder of the modern Zionist movement Theodor Herzl. Each night, unknown assailants tore Israeli and WZO flags at the site and uprooted plants in the garden that surrounds the grave. The WZO, which owns the property and maintains the gravesite, repaired the damage when it was discovered. WZO officials noted it wasn't the first time the tomb has been desecrated.
