Two Jewish cemeteries in the former East German state of Thuringia have been vandalised. In the town of Gotha, the bloody head of a pig was hung on a Star of David motif on the cemetery's iron gates.
According to the state's Interior Ministry, unknown perpetrators vandalised the cemeteries of Gotha and Erfurt. The damage was discovered at 5.30am on Monday morning by a medical rescue worker who was out walking his dog.
