More than 50 gravestones were vandalized in a Jewish cemetery in northeast Hungary.

Gravestones in the cemetery in Szikszo were smashed or toppled, Jeno Freund, the president of the Autonomous Orthodox Israelite Community of Miskolc, told the Hungarian MTI news agency.

The vandalism was discovered in recent days, thought it is unknown when it occurred since the cemetery has been closed since World War II.

A police spokesman said that an investigation is currently taking place.
