Church Vandalised in Bonneval (Eure-et-Loir)

Country: France

Date of incident: April 27, 2011

The church of Bonneval has been vandalised on Holy Thursday. According to Father François Muchery, the damage was quite substantial: on the prayer book one can see obscene drawings and words, statues have been damaged and urinated on and candles were smashed.

"I want to voice my indignation against these acts and my sympathy towards the Christian community which was offended by the desecration of the church of Bonneval... This is not only an important uncivil act but a real desecration and yet another anti-Christian offense," said Cyril Langelot, UMP delegate for the 4th circumscription.
