A man was taken into custody after he threw Molotov Cocktail in the Assumption Catholic Church in Vieux Fort, St Lucia last Sunday.
According to the St Lucia Times online news portal, the incident took place around 10:00 am, while mass was in progress.
The Times quoted an eyewitness who said it took place during collection time.
“He came in the middle aisle with two cocktail bombs and went right into the sanctuary and he smashed both cocktail bombs onto a statue on the left of the church and of course, there was pandemonium,” the churchgoer told The Times.
Churchgoers tried to subdue the man, however when the police arrived he was arrested and taken away.
No one was injured in the incident and the religious ceremony resumed soon after.
