Islamic extremists 'break into church and spray Allah on walls before destroying crucifix'

A GANG of Muslim vandals allegedly broke into a church before spray-painting "Allah" on the walls and destroying holy objects.

The extremists smashed wooden statues of the Virgin Mary and Jesus on the cross during the shocking attack earlier this week, according to reports.

They stormed the Church of our Lady of Carmen in the Spanish town of Rincon de la Victoria, Andalucia on Monday morning.

Spain's Civil Guard has now launched a probe into the vandalism.

A spokesman for the Diocese of Malaga said the attack first discovered by priest Agustin Carrasco was not representative of all Muslims.

He also said it was committed to maintaining "respect and fraternity between different religious groups".
