Statement by Secretary General Thorbjørn Jagland on the anti-Semitic acts committed last night in Alsace

Conseil de l'EuropeI unreservedly condemn the anti-Semitic, barbaric and disgusting acts of desecration of the Jewish cemetery in the Alsatian town of Quatzenheim, not far from Strasbourg, where the Council of Europe has its headquarters.
