ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — A Rochester cemetery has been targeted in the latest in a string of anti-Semitic incidents around the country.
The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle newspaper reported that (http://on.rocne.ws/2m0MbSo ) toppled and defaced headstones were discovered at Waad Hakolel Cemetery in northwest Rochester.
Cemetery officials said Thursday there were at least a dozen desecrated grave markers.
A Rochester police spokeswoman tells the newspaper that there are no suspects in custody but authorities are investigating.
About a hundred headstones were recently overturned in a Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia, only about a week after a similar crime in Missouri.
In Indiana, an apparent gunshot fired into a synagogue Tuesday has drawn the attention of the FBI.
