2 teenage boys admit vandalizing Jewish cemetery in southern Hungary

Two teenage boys have admitted vandalizing a Jewish cemetery in southern Hungary, police said Tuesday. The boys - aged 15 and 16 - also admitted carrying out similar attacks last month on a Holocaust memorial and a store owned by Chinese immigrants, said Gabor Biro, spokesman of the Kaposvar city police force. In Sunday's incident, the suspects painted swastikas and anti-Semitic slogans on two dozen graves. It was the fourth time in the past year the graveyard in Kaposvar, 190 kilometers southwest of Budapest, had been vandalized, and police were investigating whether the two suspects had any connection to the earlier cases.
