Money is being raised to repair and restore more than 100 headstones that were vandalised at a Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia.
A man visiting Mount Carmel Cemetery yesterday called police to report that three of his relatives' headstones had been knocked over and damaged.
The discovery came less than a week after similar vandalism in Missouri.
Police say approximately 100 additional headstones were knocked over, apparently sometime after dark on Saturday.
Police are conducting a criminal mischief-institutional vandalism investigation.
Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney says authorities are doing everything possible to find those "who desecrated this final resting place".
The Anti-Defamation League and a police union are offering a US$13,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.
