Twenty-six out of 150 tombstones at a Jewish cemetery in the woods near Prague have been vandalized, the Associated Press reported.

Miroslav Doubek, a Czech Republic Police spokesman, told the AP on Sept. 26 that unknown perpetrators most likely knocked over the tombstones within the last two months and also broke an unspecified number of tombstones into pieces. The cemetery is located 40 miles away from Prague in a town called Prudice.
