Anti-Semitic Papers Found in Pittsburgh12/09 11:27
PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Authorities are investigating the dissemination of
anti-Semitic pamphlets in Pittsburgh neighborhoods, including the one in which
a gunman killed 11 people in a synagogue in October.
A spokesman said police and the city department of public safety "are taking
this matter very seriously and will follow every investigative avenue."
Police said Sunday morning the material was found in neighborhoods including
Squirrel Hill, where a gunman entered the Tree of Life synagogue on Oct. 27 and
killed 11 people in the deadliest attack on Jews in U.S. history. A man who
authorities said raged against Jews during and after the shooting has pleaded
not guilty to numerous murder and hate crime charges.
Police said "such hate-filled material" will not be tolerated in the city by
residents, city officials or law enforcement.
