Barcelona: Sagrada Familia church hit by ‘arson attack’

| April 19, 2011

More than 1,500 people were evacuated from one of Spain's most popular tourist attractions, Barcelona's Sagrada Familia basilica, after an apparent arson attack.

Four people were treated for smoke inhalation after fire broke out in the sacristy of Antoni Gaudi's unfinished masterpiece.

A "disturbed" man was arrested after a group of tourists raised the alarm.

The basilica, a Unesco world heritage site, was later reopened.
