Muslims vandalize British WWI cemetery in France

The headstones of 42 British soldiers killed in France in WWI have been vandalized. In addition, the cemetery's register of war dead and a visitors' book were burned with a Molotov cocktail. At first, French police believed some drunken revelers comitted the atrocity, but they now believe that the scope of the attack and the type of damage done indicates that Muslim extremists were the perpetrators. The Albuera cemetery is located in Bailleul-sir-Berthoult, near Arras, France.
