Jewish groups in Spain protest Twitter insults
Jewish organizations 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. (AP)
