A bomb has caused damage to a synagogue outside Moscow.
There were no injuries after the explosion of a home-made device in Tyer, a town northwest of the Russian capital.
But the incident left a hole in the door to the building and damaged the fence around it, as well as smashing the windows of a neighbouring property.
Repairs to the synagogue are expected to cost more than £3000.
Officials said the explosion was “malicious hooliganism” but anti-terrorism experts are investigating and a city administrator said it could be linked to vandalism of Tyer’s Jewish cemetery.
