3 churches in Chile fire­bombed:

The Washington Post - - THE WORLD -

Pres­i­dent Michelle Bachelet asked Chileans on Fri­day to re­ceive Pope Fran­cis in a “cli­mate of re­spect,” hours af­ter three Ro­man Catholic churches were fire­bombed and a note was left at the scene threat­en­ing the pon­tiff. In the overnight at­tacks in San­ti­ago, the cap­i­tal and largest city in the coun­try where the pope will ar­rive Mon­day, the churches were hit with fire­bombs and then sprayed with ac­cel­er­ant. “The next bombs will be in your cas­sock,” read pam­phlets found out­side one of the churches.
