Vandalism at Nathan-Söderblom Church in Reinbeck

Country: Germany

Date of incident: April 30, 2011

A gang of about 20 youth has been rampaging repeatedly around the Nathan-Söderblom church in Reinbeck in the spring of 2011, including the urination into a work of art that represents the grave of Christ. Police and social service have not been able to calm down those involved, and are considering hiring a social worker to find a remedy.
