A Rwandan man, 39, has been rearrested in the French city of Nantes and charged with arson, after a fire damaged the city’s 15th Century Gothic cathedral a week ago.
It was disclosed that the man worked as a volunteer warden at the cathedral. He was said to have been detained then released last week.
It was also gathered that the suspect has admitted to being responsible for the fire that broke out in three different places. His lawyer stated that the man bitterly regrets his actions.
The fire was said to have destroyed the cathedral’s 17th Century organ, as well as historic stained glass windows.
