Caracas synagogue defaced with anti-Semitic graffiti

Posted: 01:24 PM ET
CARACAS, Venezuela (CNN) — Armed men forced their way into a Caracas synagogue, defacing its administrative offices with anti-Semitic graffiti and vandalizing an interior room where the Torah is kept, officials said.
About 15 men forced their way into the Mariperez Synagogue about 10 p.m. Friday night, staying until about 3 a.m., police said. They tied up a security guard at the synagogue before vandalizing the rooms.
Graffiti left at the scene included the phrases, “Damn the Jews,” “Jews out of here” and “Israel assassins.” The men also left behind a picture of a devil, authorities said. The men also stole computers and administrative papers or documents, officials said. They did not cover their faces, but took the recordings from security cameras with them.
