Jewish gravestones smashed in Belarus

From Israeli National News:

Unidentified vandals smashed 20 gravestones in a Jewish cemetery in the Belarusian town of Mikashevich (Brest region), according to a May 3 report by the AEN news service.

Local Jews criticized police for failing to arrest any suspects and pointed out that the cemetery is located a few meters from a police station and that the act of vandalism must have created noise. But police are said to have dragged their feet investigating the crime.

In the history of post-Soviet Belarus, Jewish cemeteries have been frequently desecrated but vandals have almost never been arrested.
