Secretary of State Antony Blinken has confirmed that a swastika was carved into an elevator wall at the state department’s main headquarters and said an investigation was underway.

In a message sent to all department employees on Tuesday, Blinken said that the vandalism was a painful reminder that antisemitism remains an issue in the US and around the world and must be combatted relentlessly.

“As this painfully reminds us, antisemitism isn’t a relic of the past,” Blinken said in the message. “It’s still a force in the world, including close to home. And it’s abhorrent. It has no place in the United States, at the state department, or anywhere else. And we must be relentless in standing up and rejecting it.”
