News the HP Doesn't Cover: Anne Frank Books Vandalized

This isn't exactly big news, but the Huffington Post has published articles over less:

TOKYO (AP) — Anne Frank’s “The Diary of a Young Girl” and scores of books about the young Holocaust victim have been vandalized in Tokyo public libraries.

Dozens of pages were ripped in the books. The libraries have counted 265 damaged books at 31 municipal libraries since the end of January. An official at one library said all the books could have been found using the keywords “Anne Frank” in an online database.
The motive is unclear. Police are investigating. 
At least one library moved Anne Frank-related books behind the counter for protection.
