Van­dals tar­get Benissa church

Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - News - Jpugh@cb­

By Jo Pugh A STAINED glass win­dow in Benissa church was bro­ken in two places on Fri­day evening, af­ter two large stones were hurled through it.

The par­ish church of Purís­sima Xi­queta dom­i­nates the main square, and is an iconic em­blem of the town.

Parish­ioners were shocked to dis­cover the two stones ly­ing be­neath one of the blue and yel­low win­dows at the rear of the church. On this oc­ca­sion, the dam­age was not sig­nif­i­cant, but now the towns­folk fear that the van­dal­ism will be re­peated.
