Holy Land Catholic cleric: 'Price tag' attacks threaten pope visit

Published: 05.11.14, 20:02 / Israel News

The top Roman Catholic cleric in the Holy Land urged Israel to crack down on vandals behind a spate of hate crimes aimed primarily at Christian and Muslim sites on Sunday, weeks before Pope Francis visits.

 

Latin Patriarch Fouad Twal said that the vandalism "poisons the atmosphere of coexistence" for the papal visit at the end of May. He asked why the vandals haven't been caught.

 

He spoke two days after another church was defaced. It was the latest in a series of attacks believed to be the work of fringe Jewish radicals. (AP)
