Romanian authorities say up to 200 graves in the Jewish community's biggest cemetery in Bucharest have been vandalised.

A spokesman for the Jewish community, Sergiu Rogosinschi, told the Associated Press that some of the most valuable monuments in the cemetery were damaged.

More than 40,000 Jews are buried in the graveyard in south Bucharest.
