The sacristan of the Notre Dame Basilica of Nice was threatened by a burglar
While escaping, the burglar threatened to return and kill everyone.
On the 3rd of July at 4 pm, the sacristan of the Notre Dame Basilica in Nice surprised a man while plundering the church. The individual tried to run away with some stolen objects, but the sacristan blocked his exit. The burglar ran away empty-handed but shouted that he would come back and kill everyone.
Eventually the assailant was arrested and brought to court where he admitted the burglary but denied having any intention of terrorism.
On the 29th of October of 2020, three people were murdered by an immigrant from Tunisia in that same church. Understandably, the threat of terrorism is taken seriously in the area.
