A church was vandalised in broad daylight in Italy
On the 17th of August a foreign man attacked the historic church of Santa Cristina in Turin's Plazza San Carlo in broad daylight.
The attack can be seen in a video that is circulating on the Internet. In the video, the man can be heard cursing at the worshippers inside the church, and shouting: ‘F****ng Christians’.
The perpetrator was arrested by the police and was taken to a hospital, as he had injured himself while throwing stones at the church.
The people witnessing the attack quickly called for help, and when the police came they were able to disarm the man. The foreign national, who was injured when he threw one of the stones at the glass of the church door, was immobilised on the ground while awaiting the arrival of an ambulance.
