Slovenia: Vandals Spray Nationalist Symbols on Graves of Muslim Soldiers

The headstones of Muslim soldiers killed in the first World War have been vandalized in the North-western Slovenian Log pod Mangartom. The tombstones were sprayed with Serbian nationalistic symbols. Community Secretary Nizet Poric reacted angrily to the act of defacement, saying that the incidents are “first-class vandalism (and were) right out of order.” The local Islamic community has been notified, and the police are still investigating the incident. The cemetery is the final resting place of Bosnian soldiers who fought in the Austrian army during WWI and killed in the battles of 1916.
