Fire-raising on Catholic School and Chapel in Montpellier, France.

The night of Friday 23rd to Saturday 24th, unknown people raised a fire at the school and chapel of Notre Dame de Fatima in Montpellier. The first observations showed that it was obviously meant as an act against a Catholic building – some liturgical objects were clearly the target. Some months before, there had already been a fire raising at a Catholic Church in the same town.
