Czech Holocaust memorial is vandalized

Vandals spray-painted graffiti on a Holocaust memorial in the Czech Republic.
The memorial in Ostrava, the republic's third largest city, was vandalized over the weekend, Ostrava police told the Czech news agency CTK.
"The perpetrators sprayed the memorial with specific symbols," a police spokeswoman said, without identifying the symbols.
CTK reported that police are looking to charge the as yet unknown perpetrators with hooliganism, vandalism and defamation of a nation, race and an ethnic or other group of persons. If convicted, they would face up to two years in prison.
