Vandals Strike Danish Deli in Anti-Semitic Attack; Smash Deli Window, Write "Jewish Pigs" on Wall

Vandals smashed a window and scrawled anti-Semitic messages at Copenhagen's only kosher deli early yesterday morning, less than two months after a man was killed in an attack outside a synagogue in the Danish city, the Times of Israel website reports today (April 10, 2015).

Police said a window was broken and the word "Jodesvin," which translates to "Jewish Pigs," was written on a wall, according to Danish media reports.

The incident came amid concerns of rising anti-Semitism in Europe. Officials have pointed to a worrying uptick in attacks against Jews on the continent in the last several months, including an attack on a kosher deli in Paris in January that left four Jews dead.

The attack came as Denmark commemorated the 75th anniversary of the Nazi invasion of the country, on April 9, 1940.
