Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses attacked in Ajaccio, Corsica: Manuel Valls keeps silence
Corse Matin (02.08.2013) – An apparent firebomb attack was directed against a Jehovah’s Witness meeting hall on the evening of 31st July in the city of Ajaccio in Southern Corsica, France. Residents heard three separate explosions and summoned fire fighters, who quickly extinguished the blaze. No one was injured and only the front entrance was damaged.
Police officials remarked that the attack against the Jehovah’s Witnesses was « a first in Corsica, » where the group has been present and well-received for many years. An investigation is still on-going to uncover the motivations for the strike.
Strangely enough, French Interior Minister Manuel Valls kept silent about this incident.
