Anne Frank Book Defaced in Tokyo

annefrankTokyo police have arrested a man for allegedly ripping the pages from a book related to Anne Frank at a Tokyo library.

The arrest comes at a time when hundreds of Frank books have been vandalized in libraries across the city.

TIME has the story: “Tokyo police said the man, 36, sneaked into a library on Feb. 5 and ripped pages from 23 Frank-related books, including at least one copy of the diary. Some of the ripped pages were found in a plastic bag at an unidentified house in Tokyo. Police said that the suspect admitted to ripping the pages out of the books, but that his motive was unclear. They did not release the suspect’s name.”
