Somali migrant tries to set Swiss church on fire and causes at least 16,000 euros in damages


On Thursday, a church in the Swiss town of Pfäfers was damaged by a Somali migrant, Swiss media outlet 20 Minutes reports.

The St. Gallen police arrested the 28-year-old Somali after a short search of the area. Several cloths were lit on altars and wooden tables, in an attempt that looks like a way to set the church on fire.

Fortunately a man who saw the fire was able to extinguish it while alerting the police. Other church attributes were heavily damaged as well.

The property damage is at least 20,000 Swiss Francs, which corresponds to 16,600 Euros. Police say the man is ‘confused’ and has been put in a mental facility.
