Notre Dame fire: intelligence services responsible for arson

Summary of Disinformation

The ongoing police investigation of the Notre Dame fire origin reveals that it was most likely due to a short circuit in a temporary elevator used for renovation works. The version of arson was not confirmed by any evidence.

Two minor arsons took place in Lavaur and Paris due to presence of homeless people in a church in one case and teenagers in the other one, as previously reported.

French government documents even minor desecration cases occurred in Churches and does not discover its increasing, reminds Liberation check news.
