A Greek Orthodox church has been targeted by vandals in Hungary

On the evening of the 15th of March, unknown perpetrators broke into the Greek Orthodox Church of Gödöllő.


The perpetrators then set fire to the pews and sprayed an icon with flammable material. Neighbours noticed the fire and immediately alerted the fire brigade.

The parish priest described the vandalism as a clearly anti-Christian act and said that damage the vandals caused is estimated to be around 2.5 million HUF (around 81,000USD).
