Fire set to Adventist church

Sombor, Serbia - The Temple of the Adventist Church was set on fire in a village near Sombor early this morning.

In a statement, the Adventist Church says the temple’s altar inventory and several benches were destroyed.

“This indicates that the fire was started on purpose. This is not the first attack on our temple in this municipality, especially in Sivac”, the statement reads.

Mid December, several structures belonging to minor religious communities came under attack, while this type of incident also occurred earlier.

The so-called non traditional religious communities number less that 20,000 people, or 0.2 of the population, according to the latest census data.
