Swastikas sprayed on UC Davis Jewish fraternity

DAVIS, Calif. -- Police are searching for the person who spray-painted swastikas on a Jewish fraternity house at UC Davis.

Students there say the swastikas were spray-painted sometime Saturday morning. The vice president of the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity has condemned it as a hate crime saying it threatened to rekindle tensions on campus.

Linda P.B. Katehi, chancellor of UC Davis, called the graffiti "despicable and hateful" in a statement.

The Associated Students of UC Davis recently passed an advisory resolution asking the UC Regents to stop investing in businesses connected to Israel.
