NICOSIA, Cyprus – Greek Cypriots received a shock on Wednesday night as 20 foreigners attacked the faithful at the church of Faneromeni in the center of the old city in Nicosia.

The foreigners, of Muslim background, showed their lack of plurality by attacking a church in a country that is overwhelmingly Christian Orthodox.

As reported by SigmaLive, about 20 foreigners scared the worshipers in the church’s courtyard.
