On June 16, 2005 BBC News reported, "Political and civic leaders in Hungary have strongly condemned an attack on a Jewish cemetery in Budapest which left some 130 gravestones damaged. The vandalism occurred at the Kozma Street Jewish cemetery on the eastern outskirts of the capital. The damage was discovered after the cemetery reopened following a two-day Jewish holiday. Reports said many of the graves had been damaged, but the stones had not been defaced with racist symbols."
