More than 90 tombstones were knocked over at a Jewish cemetery east of Prague.

Ten tombstones were broken at the cemetery in the Czech Republic town of Pristoupim, according to reports. The vandalism took place between April 21 and 26, local police said.

The cemetery was founded in the second half of the 18th century and renovated in the 1970s, an expert on the Czech Republic’s Jewish landmarks told the German news agency DPA. The cemetery has been vandalized twice in recent years, The Associated Press reported. It is no longer used for burials.
