Vandals attacked a Jewish cemetery in Siberia, overturning or breaking 64 grave markers, a leading Russian Jewish community organization said Monday. The vandalism came amid concerns about persistent racism, xenophobia and anti-Semitism in Russia. The attack occurred late Sunday or early Monday at the Jewish cemetery in the city of Krasnoyarsk, about 3,400 kilometers (2,100 miles) east of Moscow, the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia said. It said that the cemetery had been seriously vandalized twice before in the past decade, and that anti-Semitic slogans had been scrawled several times on the walls of the city's synagogue, but nobody had been prosecuted over the incidents.
