Arson to church in France

Country: France

Date of incident: November 15, 2022

Plastic objects inside the church have been set on fire and were burned on a candle holder on the 15th of November. The incident was discovered by a parishioner, who had opened the church and left to return a couple of hours later. When she came back, the premises smelled like burning, so she alerted the parish priest. They also notified the police, who realized that plastic objects had been set on fire intentionally by unknown perpetrators.

The church had to be ventilated, and an investigation was opened.  While the images of the security cameras are being processed, a complaint is to be lodged in the coming days by the churchman.
