A 24-year-old student was sentenced by the Montpellier Criminal Court to no longer enter the Saint François d'Assise church.

A place of worship located Place Carnot, in the prefecture of Hérault.

A surprising condemnation for a reason that is just as surprising: on three occasions, in the space of a few days, the young woman presented herself in the church to demand that the bells… stop ringing.

Extremely vindictive, she entered Sunday at 11:30 am during the service to threaten the priest and the faithful to set fire to the church if her wishes were not granted.

Taking these threats seriously in front of the increasingly bellicose attitude of the student, the priest finally decided to alert the police.
