Austria: Vienna cemetery vandalized, news site bashed for using 'wrong image'

Via Die Presse (h/t Watch: Antisemitism in Europe):

The wall of the Jewish cemetery in Vienna was spray-painted with a swastika.   The Jewish Community Vienna (IKG) filed a complaint.

It's noteworthy that English-language site The Local didn't get around to publicizing the incident, but was very concerned abut the fact that a 'wrong' image was used by news site OE24.

"Even if the quotes and allegations in the article are true, it's highly misleading for the newspaper to publish pictures taken nearly ten years ago in a different country, and imply with the picture caption that it took place in Vienna."
