Anti-Semitic crime up in Malmö

Crime targeting the Jewish community in Malmö has gone up this year. The number of anti-Semitic crimes committed during the first half of 2011 is the same as the total number of the same type of crime in 2010, reports TT news agency.

Fredrik Sieradzki, head of information at the Jewish congregation, told Swedish Radio in Malmö that people going to and from the synagogue are usually the targets of these crimes.

Police reported 21 crimes with anti-Semitic overtones and 105 crimes characterised as anti-foreigner. For the whole year the numbers were 20 and 116, respectively.
