May 22, 2017
A mob vandalized a Catholic church in Keesara, India, on May 21, less than two weeks after it had been consecrated.
About 100 people burst into the church of Our Lady of Fatima, breaking a statue of the Virgin Mary and a crucifix and leaving books, tables, and statues strewn throughout the building.
Archbishop Thumma Bala of the local Hyderabad archdiocese said that a service of reparation and reconsecration of the church building would take place after police had concluded their investigation.
