The altar, as well as the crucifix, were desecrated: a condom and a Koran were found on the altar. According to the translators, it was written: "(...) Almighty on earth and under the earth, he is the supreme commander, after him and before him. There is no god other than (the name is that of the defiler). To him belongs kingship and praise."
