Break-in: Church Looted and Icons Stolen

(ERPKIM) On Saturday, April 24, the Serbian Orthodox church of St. Catherine in Bresje near Kosovo Polje, located across from the burned ruins of the Serb hospital was broken into and looted. Kosovo Polje parish priest Dragisa Jerenic informed the Diocese of Raska-Prizren and Kosovo-Metohija that on Saturday the door of the church of St. Catherine was broken down and the thieves took 10 icons, some money and various church vessels. The Diocese of Raska-Prizren and Kosovo-Metohija concludes with regret that following the pogrom of March 17 and a series of sharp warnings by the international community to Kosovo Albanians to stop attacking Orthodox churches in the Province, attacks on Christian holy shrines continue and the remaining Orthodox churches are not adequately protected.
