Arson attack on Sagrada Familia cathedral

One of Spain’s most famous landmarks, the Sagrada Familia cathedral in Barcelona, has had to be evacuated after a suspected arson attack, according to the BBC. About 1,500 tourists were ordered to leave the building reportedly after a man started a fire in the sacristy, where priests don their robes. Firefighters managed to put out the fire, and nobody was hurt, although some furnishings were damaged. A man, who was described as “disturbed”, was detained by police.
