JERUSALEM (Reuters) - An arson attack damaged a Greek Orthodox seminary near Jerusalem's Old City on Thursday and anti-Christian graffiti in Hebrew at the scene suggested the incident was a hate crime.

Police said no one was injured by the blaze in a bathroom of the seminary, which came a day after part of a Palestinian mosque was set alight in the occupied West Bank. Both attacks were being investigated, they said.
