For the second time in a month, vandals desecrated Jewish graves in Tunisia. Unidentified individuals smashed and overturned ten grave stones in Kef, in western Tunisia, according to the Tunisia News Network.
An earlier incident in the coastal Tunisian town of Sousse left more than 68 Jewish graves ransacked and looted two weeks ago, according to the Tunisian Shems FM radio station.
The last Jew left Kef in 1984, according to Dreuz.info, a French news website. It quoted Yves Kamhi, a Jewish lawyer, as saying some human skeletons were found outside their graves.
Some 1,700 Jews live in Tunisia, according to the European Jewish Congress. They numbered 100,000 in 1948.
