Unidentified vandals attacked a Jewish cemetery Monday in St. Petersburg for the second time in two weeks, damaging 60 gravestones, the city's Jewish community. "The repeated character of several recent attacks against the Jewish cemetery makes us believe that it was not simple acts of vandalism, but that those actions could be nationalist and extremist in nature," said Mark Grubarg, head of the city's Jewish Religious Community. Jewish officials decided Monday to meet with the city police chief, in order to raise funds to the build a fence around the cemetery and post additional guards there, Grubarg said. On Oct. 6, vandals destroyed more than 40 tombstones at the Jewish cemetery.
