Confessions, 24 hours after the dramatic Schiltigheim fire. The suspect arrested Tuesday morning by the police admitted, that night, in custody in Strasbourg, to have intentionally set fire to the half-timbered building that burned in the night from Monday to Tuesday. An 11-year-old child died in this fire.
Contrary to what the investigators thought at first, there is no racist motive. It would be rather "the work" of a drunken young man already known by the police for arson.
