Swastika daubed on Jewish memorial in Berlin

Vandals daubed a swastika in red paint on a Berlin memorial to the Nazis' Jewish victims, police said Sunday. The roughly meter-high swastika appeared during the night on the Levetzowstrasse memorial, which marks the site of a former synagogue and one of the places where Jews were gathered during World War II for deportation to concentration camps. A similar symbol was found on a nearby memorial plaque, police said; both swastikas were removed. Authorities were investigating the incident.
