A Priest Threatened And Assaulted In Toul

Country: France

Date of incident: July 1, 2009

Father Noël became a victim of intimidation and threats in Toul over the course of a year. He finally decided to leave the district of la Croix de Metz in Toul.

During a year, his apartment was the target of rocks and pebbles throwing. But in July 2009, things got worse as incidents would occur every night and the priest even got hurt by a stone thrown at him. Young men even confronted him and threatened him saying: “We will come to get you”.
