Synagogue vandalized in western France

PARIS - Vandals broke into a synagogue in southwestern France, ransacking the main prayer hall and destroying holy books, police and Jewish leaders said Thursday.

The attack on the synagogue of Perigueux, in the Dordogne region, took place before dawn Wednesday after worshippers and officials had already left. It came during the eight-day Jewish celebration of Hanukkah, which ends Friday at sundown.

Rolph Hammel, one of the synagogue's officials, said the vandals ripped apart paintings and holy books inside the temple and stole money hidden inside an office.

Police said an investigation was opened into the attack on the synagogue, which is located just 50 meters (yards) from the city's police headquarters and municipal offices.
