Sweden: Synagogue vandalized twice

The synagogue in Norrköping (south of Stockholm) was the target of two attacks in the past two weeks.  In both cases stones were thrown through the window.

After the first attack, the police did not respond immediately.  The reason being that they classified it as 'vandalism' and not as a 'hate crime', since it did not involve graffiti or other clear political or racist message.  However, if the vandalism continues, they might reclassify it.
