France: Town covered with antisemitic graffiti

Mantes-la-Ville – Antisemitic graffiti was discovered Friday morning on the walls of several municipal buildings in Jean-Jaurès Avenue, at the city of Mantes-la-Ville (Yvelines). The graffiti were mainly sprayed on the local police building, local market, and Jean-Jaurès elementary school, all located within the city hall quarter. Graffiti was also found on several private houses.

The malicious graffiti was directed against the Jewish community. Some of it praised the Kouachi brothers, who carried out the massacre in the offices of the satirical weekly newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris on January 7th this year (11 killed, including 8 journalists).
