Graves belonging to AMIA Jewish Center attack victims were among those vandalized in an Argentine Jewish cemetery.

Fifty-eight headstones at the La Tablada Jewish cemetery in Buenos Aires province were defaced between Sept. 11 and 12. Eight belonged to victims of the 1994 center bombing, which killed 85.

“All the investment in security made in the cemetery was not enough?” asked Olga Degtiar, mother of Cristian Degtiar, who was killed in the AMIA bombing.

The president of the National Institute Against Discrimination, Maria Jose Lubertino, said the attack was an “evident anti-Semitic aggression.” Jewish leaders denounced the vandalism.
