Koekelberg Basilica Vandalized for 15 Days

Country: Belgium

Date of incident: March 15, 2022

For the past 15 days, the Koekelberg basilica in Belgium has had cobblestones thrown through its windows by young teenagers. Other vandalism and disrespectful acts have been done at this sacred sight in the past but the recent escalation was evident. The director general, Martine Motteux-Abeloos, regrets how little the police have done and will hold talks with other leaders about potentially closing the sight to the public.

Update 18.03.2022: 42 windows have now been broken and "the police are present daily on the spot" reports La Lebre.
