According to sigmalive.com, strangers desecrated the icons and the door of the Church of Panagia Lampadiotissa in the village Mitsero, in Cyprus, on Saturday night.
The photos are all over the Internet and it seems that the strangers painted pentacle stars and inverted crosses on the icons.
Speaking to sigmalive.com, the mayor of the village of Mitsero, Andreas Kyriakou, stated that the Police were also called to investigate the place. “They spray-painted and damaged all the icons. I do not know what led them to do such thing,” he said. He added that the vandals were people who did not live in the village and that the incident may be linked to the fact that strangers had recently set fire to the church.
