Lawyer for a volunteer at A gothic cathedral in the city of Nantes, in western France said he confessed to setting fire to the building which severely damaged his 17th-century organ and blew up stained glass windows.
The 39-year-old defendant, an asylum seeker from Rwanda who has lived in France for several years, was arrested earlier this month after laboratory tests determined arson was the likely cause of the fire, the local prosecutor’s office said.
“My client cooperated,” lawyer Quentin Chabert told the newspaper Presse-Océan on Sunday, without specifying the reasons for the attempt to burn down the cathedral of Saint-Pierre and Saint-Paul.
“He bitterly regrets his actions… My client is consumed with remorse,” said Chabert.
It is amazing how little coverage stories like this get. A historic cathedral is burned down by a Rwandan migrant and nobody cares. Let’s do a thought experiment. Imagine if a Christian burned down a mosque. Would that not make national news? Would their not be hashtags flying everywhere about it?
