PARIS (AP) — French authorities say they are trying to identify and apprehend those responsible for a recent spate of anti-Semitic and anti-gay graffiti messages that have appeared on buildings in the southern city of Toulouse.

The interior ministry says the buildings targeted by the graffiti attacks included a center for lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transsexuals, as well as a left-wing party's campaign office, a cemetery and a university.

The interior ministry condemned the attacks, which it said "revolt us all and injure all Toulousains."

Nearly two years ago, a gunman's attack on a Jewish school in Toulouse killed a rabbi, his two sons and a girl.
