A cemetery was vandalised in the French city of Saint-Urbain

This weekend, the cemetery and the town hall of Saint-Urbain were the objects of acts of vandalism. Crosses and windows in a town hall were also smashed.


The alarm  was raised on Monday. Later, a forensic team from the local police force along with criminal identification technicians investigated the acts of vandalism in the town.

“I do not understand,” said Julien Poupon, the mayor of the town, in an interview with Ouest-France. “The community hall was violently attacked; the windows must have been shattered with hammers,” he added.

The local police force  is currently investigating  the incident in order  to shed light on this latest example of attacks targeted at Christianity in France.
