'On Thursday night unknown vandals broke down the front door of the Cathedral of St. George in Tripoli, Libya, and stormed inside...'

If I read it correctly the article goes on to say that the holy vessels and Gospels were stolen from the sanctuary together with relics of St. George and vestments and the nave was vandalized (candle stands overturned, et cetera).

"This is the Apostolic Faith, the Orthodox Faith, and the Faith of the Fathers. Having this wonderful treasure, let us preserve it, let us keep it, and let us also use it in such a way that this treasure becomes the victory of Christ in us and in His Church." ~ St. Severus of Antioch ~
