Five Serbian Orthodox Churches broken into in Croatia

March 10, 2017 – Five Orthodox temples in Croatia have been broken into during the past  several days, the Serbian Orthodox Church (SPC) announced on Friday.

Money was stolen, but no major material damage has been done, a statement released by the SPC Eparchy (diocese) of Dalmatia said.

The churches targeted in this way are located in Baljci, Stikovo, Krici, Miocix and Kanjani – in Dalmatia.

The police station in Drnis has ascertained that five Orthodox temples were broken into between March 6 and 8, and found that a small amount of money was stolen, but that there was no major material damage.

The same SPC diocese reported earlier this week that an Orthodox church in this area of Croatia was vandalized with fascist graffit
