MOSCOW (JTA) — Some 30 Jewish headstones have been desecrated in a cemetery here.

The vandalism, discovered on Thursday of last week, occurred at the Vostryakovo cemetery, the only cemetery in Moscow that has a Jewish section.

It was the latest incident in a series of recent attacks on Jewish targets in and around the Russian capital city.

Jewish groups said they suspected anti-Semitism was behind the attack, which comes after the bombing of a Moscow synagogue in May and the desecration of a Jewish cemetery near the city last month.

Last week's attack received surprisingly extensive coverage in leading newspapers and television channels here.
