Church door set on fire

Malta Independent - - FRONT PAGE -

The front door of a church in Birkirkara was set on fire yes­ter­day morn­ing. The church is ded­i­cated to St Mary, and is known among the parish­ioners as the Knisja l-Qadima (old church). The fire was dis­cov­ered by the church sac­ristan who put the blaze out with the help of some peo­ple living in the area. The po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing. The parish, on its Face­book page, said that it was an ar­son at­tempt. It said that the fire was put out be­fore it could spread to the inside of the church. The parish con­demned the “bar­baric and heart­less” act, re­quest­ing any­one with in­for­ma­tion to ap­proach the po­lice.
