Unknown vandals broke into the synagogue on the island of Corfu and burned books two centuries old as well as kipot and tallitot. The break-in occurred at approximately dawn Tuesday, the second day of Passover. Firemen arrived within minutes and prevented the fire from spreading after being alerted by a police patrol car that was stationed in the front of the synagogue.
