PARIS – Dozens of gravesites in a small-town cemetery in northern France have been vandalized, days after massive destruction at a Jewish cemetery in the country.
France's Interior Ministry said crucifixes were overturned and gravesites disturbed. The vandalism in Tracy-sur-Mer, a tiny town next to the D-Day landing beaches, was discovered late Tuesday, hours after French President Francois Hollande visited the Jewish cemetery in the Alsace region of eastern France, where 250 graves were desecrated.
Five local teens were detained in the Alsace desecration. There have been no arrests in the Normandy vandalism.
