Church arson suspects formally charged in Icelandic court

| September 14, 2011

Four young people have been charged with deliberately burning Iceland’s famous Krysuvik church to the ground on 2nd January last year.

The church had been a protected building for twenty years.

According to the charges laid by the state prosecutor, the two men born in 1990 and two girls born in 1993 poured petrol over the church’s wooden inside and set fire to it. The wooden church was completely destroyed in the fire (more on the story here).

The four are also charged with theft, because they are accused of having stolen the isolated church’s collection boxes, containing ISK 4,000 (EUR 24.83).
