The memorial of Karl Marx, the revolutionary philosopher who developed the theory of communism, at the Highgate Cemetery has been vandalised in London, cemetery officials reported. The words "architect of genocide", "terror and oppression" and "mass murder" were written in red paint on the monument.

The previous attack on the monument was carried out on 4 February, when it was "seemingly struck several times with a blunt metal instrument", according to reports.
In 1956, the Communist Party of Great Britain funded the 12 feet (3.7 metres) granite slab memorial topped with a bronze bust of Marx in north London.
Karl Marx was a renowned German philosopher, economist, historian, and political theorist.
