Jewish Groups in Spain Protest Twitter Insults

Jewish organisations in Spain have asked prosecutors to investigate some 18,000 allegedly anti-Semitic insults sent via Twitter following a weekend European basketball game.

The complaints refer to tweets sent after Israel's Maccabi Tel Aviv beat Spain's Real Madrid.

The president of the Israel in Catalonia association, Ruben Novoa, says a complaint was filed Tuesday against five Twitter account users whose full names appeared on the messages. He said most names on the messages were believed to be false.

Novoa says that a recent study by the Anti-Defamation League indicated Spain was one of the most anti-Semitic countries in the 28-nation European Union.

The formal complaint was made by a dozen Jewish groups and support organizations in the northeastern region of Catalonia and elsewhere in Spain.
