Petrol bomb misses new German synagogue

| October 31, 2010

Mainz, Germany – A petrol bomb which was thrown towards a brand-new synagogue in Germany hit a tree and did no damage, police said Sunday.

German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle condemned the late Saturday incident as a 'despicable act' and called on police to find the culprits, saying in a written statement, 'anti-Semitism can have no place in our society.'

Police said a type of Molotov cocktail was thrown towards the futuristic building, but burned out under a tree outside the synagogue compound.

An eyewitness saw only the flash in the dark as it exploded. The synagogue was not damaged.

The site was inaugurated in September.
