    A Jewish store in Copenhagen had a window broken and an anti-Semitic slur scrawled on its walls in an act of vandalism that comes just two months after a guard outside a local synagogue was gunned down.

    One of the windows of the Jewish delicatessen and kosher store at Lyngbyvej in Østerbro was smashed and the word “Jødesvin” (Jewish pigs) was scrawled on a wall.

    A police patrol discovered the damage Thursday afternoon, The Local reported.

    Danish police have kept a close eye on Jewish institutions since the Copenhagen shootings on February 14 when a Danish–born man of Palestinian descent shot dead filmmaker Finn Nørgaard and then a Jewish security guard outside the city's main synagogue before being killed by police.
