Cemetery damaged; goths blamed

Ireland: Vandals have caused serious damage to a cemetery in Mountmellick, and the local priest insists it can't be, well, vandalism:

It was not so much the amount of damage which was done but it was the nature of the destruction that is disturbing. Crosses were taken out of the ground and turned upside down, said Fr McNamara. There was something sinister about it.

The reversed cross, known as the St Peter’s Cross, is used as a symbol of Satanism.

Police are focusing their attention on the local goths (you know, the kids who probably like the graveyard) who have reported harassment since the incident.
