Migrant Arrested for Repeatedly Vandalising Greek Cathedral

Migrant Arrested for Repeatedly Vandalising Greek Cathedral

Greek police have arrested a 38-year-old Algerian migrant after he caused damage to a cathedral twice in less than a week.

The incident is just the latest act of vandalism directed at a church or chapel in Greece by a migrant.

Last month a pair of migrants were arrested on the island of Chios after they had looted an Orthodox Christian chapel for money and various sacred objects.

Just a month prior, police in the city of Thessaloniki arrested a 36-year-old migrant from Kazakhstan who is suspected of stealing goods from several churches in the area worth as much as €50,000 (£46,000/$56,000).

The most recent high-profile attack took place last month in the city of Nantes, with a Rwandan migrant suspected of being behind an arson attack that saw the Cathedral of St Peter and St Paul set ablaze.
