Police reinforce security on island of Corfu for Israelis arriving on cruise ships; Jewish community mourns loss of Torah scrolls

Two suspects were arrested Wednesday in connection with setting fire to a synagogue on the Greek island of Corfu a day earlier, Greek Police said.

Police on the island reinforced security around Israeli's arriving in the country on cruise ships as a result of a travel advisory that was issued.

Arsonists set fire to a synagogue on the island early on Tuesday, damaging prayer books but causing no injuries, in the third such attack in Greece in less than two years, police said.
