Catholic Churches Desecrated Across France

At least 10 incidents of vandalism and desecration of Catholic churches have been reported across France since the beginning of February, according to media reports.

The actions included the desecration of altars, the defacing of Christ on the cross, arson attacks and an extreme case of human excrement being spread across the walls.
