French-American school vandalized with graffiti


SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The French-American International School in San Francisco was vandalized with graffiti Tuesday morning, according to San Francisco police.

A symbol was found spray-painted on a wall at the playground on Hickory Street, just north of the Oak Street campus.

It was originally reported that the graffiti was an ISIS flag, but police have since confirmed that the graffiti is a symbol used by a group called 5 Percent Nation who have links to the Nation of Islam.

Police also said that the graffiti is not a threat but an act of vandalism.

The graffiti is visible to the public from an alley behind the school, but it is now fenced off and covered with a black tarp.isis2

School is still in session, but tight security is being enforced.

“The SFPD Special Investigation Division is actively investigating this incident to determine if it amounts to a hate crime,” police said.

The graffiti comes after the ISIS attack on Paris that killed over a hundred people.

The French American International School has 1,080 students ranging from pre-kindergarten to twelfth grade. 23 percent of those students are French nationals.
