Jewish cemetery desecrated in Manchester

The Philips Park Jewish cemetery in Manchester, in northern England, was vandalised, including the tomb of Rabbi Yehuda Zev Segal.

Local police in Manchester’s Whitefield neighbourhood declared the vandalism a criminal act rather than antisemitic, basing their conclusion on copper having been stolen from a bathroom on the cemetery grounds.
