Turin, February 8 - Italian police in Turin are investigating an act of vandalism that badly damaged a commemorative plaque overnight Thursday dedicated to the victims of the Foibe massacres - the killing of Italians by Yugoslav partisans at the end of World War II in the Istrian peninsula. The monument has been taken by police as evidence and will be repaired, city officials said. It is the second time the plaque has been damaged since 2011. Another memorial was also vandalized in January. A black swastika was found on a Turin memorial plaque commemorating four Italian partisans killed in the city in 1944 and 1945. Police believe the graffiti and insults scrawled nearby were painted on International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
