Student threatens to set church on fire in France

Country: France

Date of incident: October 2, 2022

On the 2nd of October, a student was arrested in Montpellier after threatening to set fire to the church of Saint-François d'Assise. She said that she could not stand the noise of the church bells. The woman is said to have stormed into the church at the time of service (around 11.30 am) and threatened to set fire to the church, referencing what happened at Notre Dame in Paris. Given the aggressive behaviour towards the parish volunteers, she has been banned from entering the church.




It seems that was already the third time in a few days that she had entered the building in this way, that is why one person decided to call the police.
