Murcia – Vandals have ripped the plaque from a monument which commemorates victims of the Holocaust in Murcia City and scrawled far-right graffiti on it.

Images of the memorial, on Calle Derechos Humanos, posted on social media showed the plaque gone last Friday.

The picture, posted by the Cambiemos Murcia group, also showed the words ‘El Valle no se toca’ (The Valley is not touched) written between two crosses.

The slogan is one used by supporters of former Spanish dictator Francisco Franco who oppose the removal of his remains from the Valley of the Fallen mausoleum. Plans to do so are currently being drawn up by the government in Madrid.

The identity of the vandals remained unknown this week and they remained at large.
