Thuringia: Afghan empties church and destroys Jesus figure

Nordhausen (Thuringia) – When Pastor Klemens Müller (50) looked out the window last week, he believed that the person was at work!

A young Afghan (25) was clearing the pastor’s church in Nordhausen (Thuringia). The fugitive quietly dragged chairs outside, robbed the altar, tore music books and organ literature from the cupboards and did not stop in front of the cross or a figure of Jesus.

The responsible superintendent Andreas Schwarze (50) is shocked at how brutally the man acted: “When he tore a medieval crucifix from the wall, it fell down and broke. He smashed the glass of a showcase to create reliefs with depictions of Jesus from the church. Everything gave the impression of being deedicated. “
