A Jewish cemetery was vandalised in a village in the Czech Republic, where unidentified perpetrators smashed at least one headstone and etched obscene drawing on several others.

Police have no suspects in custody in connection with the incident in Osoblaha in a north-eastern district of the Central European country.

In addition to toppling and smashing at least one headstone, the perpetrators also drew male genitals on one headstone and a smiley face on another, the Coordination Forum For Countering Antisemitism reported on its website.
