ANTWERP—Dozens of mezuzahs were removed from homes of Jewish residents in Antwerp on Saturday. 

Security cameras installed in the area have revealed that the author was a Muslim refugee who was arrested a few weeks ago when he placed Koranic books in synagogues.

Local police are investigating the incident.

This is a second anti-Semitic incident in the past two weeks in the city, home of a large Jewish community.

Two weeks ago, a local Muslim was suspected of trying to ram with his car an Orthodox man and his child walking in the center of the city on their way to the synagogue.

A Belgian watchdog group on anti-Semitism said the near ramming of the two Jews was a racist attack but police said the suspect was inebriated and was charged merely with reckless driving.
