Manchester Jewish cemetery vandalized in ‘sickening’ attack

A Jewish cemetery in Manchester has been vandalized, with 14 gravestones destroyed in an apparent anti-Semitic crime, The Guardian reports.

“This is a sickening act of anti-Semitism which we are taking very seriously. I believe this was a deliberate and targeted attack and there is no place for such abhorrent behavior in our communities,” says police representative Ch Supt Wasim Chaudhry.

“All decent members of the public recognize that a cemetery is supposed to be a resting place for people who have passed away; a place of sanctity and dignity where families can come and pay their respects.”
