A statue of John Paul II vandalised in Canada

Dozens of red hands were smeared on the base of the statue of Pope John Paul II in front of the Church of the Holy Rosary in Edmonton, Canada.


A woman is suspected of painting the statue, which sits outside Holy Rosary Catholic Church on the corner of 114th Avenue and 106th Street, police said in a news release Sunday.

The base of the statue had dozens of red-painted hand prints and the former pope’s name was smeared with red paint.

Police don’t have an age or description of the suspect, but say the incident occurred shortly after 11 p.m. on Saturday.
