Holocaust memorial in Ukraine defaced
A Holocaust monument was vandalized in southern Ukraine.

The monument in the town of Feodosia was smeared with paint and anti-Semitic graffiti. The incident took place on the night of Feb. 21-22, but was reported to the media only this week. Local authorities are investigating the incident.

The monument was opened in September 2003 on the site of a Nazi wartime massacre of 2,000 Jews.
