Large swastikas were found painted on more than 100 gravestones in a Jewish cemetery in the capital of Latvia. The swastikas apparently were painted in white spray paint overnight Tuesday at the New Jewish Cemetery in Riga. A cemetery guard made the discovery the next morning, according to reports. State and local police are investigating.
