Catholics face death threats and insults during procession in France

On the 8th of December, ten people violently attacked a procession of around thirty believers on the occasion of the feast of the Immaculate Conception in Nanterre (France). The Christians were called "infidels" among other and threatened to be decapitated. The attackers also threw water and even a torch in their direction.


When the police arrived, the group with three alleged ringleaders ran away. The procession was able to resume, heading straight for the parish without making further stops.

Local authorities said they strongly condemned “insults, threats and intimidation” during the procession and expressed solidarity with the Catholics of Nanterre.
