A French church in the commune of Maisons-Laffitte was vandalised over the weekend and has become the ninth church to be desecrated across France in the last 11 days.
The attack, which targeted the Saint Nicolas Roman Catholic church, saw the tabernacle of the church overthrown and vandalised and is not the first church in the area to be vandalised in recent weeks, according to local prefect Jean-Jacques Brot, Le Parisien reports.
According to the Observatoire de la Christianophobie (Observatory of Christianophobia), the incident is the ninth church attack in only 11 days with another church in the city of Tarn being not only vandalised but partially set on fire on February 5th.
In the Notre-Dame-Des-Enfants in Nîmes last week an even more grotesque attack occurred when not only was the tabernacle of the church attacked and desecrated but the attackers smeared faeces on the walls of the church, as well.
The incidents are just the latest attacks on French churches in recent years.
