NIAMEY Several Christian leaders are being held in protective custody in Niger after demonstrators angry at an anti-Islam film ransacked a major Catholic church, a local journalist said Sunday.
Hundreds of protesters stormed the cathedral in Niger's second city of Zinder after Friday prayers, and set fire to US and British flags, a local priest and the journalist told AFP.
The Islamic Council of Niger, the highest religious body in the mainly Muslim country, condemned the US-made film that has triggered protests across the Arab and Muslim world, but also appealed for churches to be spared.
One policeman was wounded in clashes that erupted during the protests in Zinder, which lies near the border with Nigeria, and about a dozen demonstrators were arrested, the journalist said.
"After Friday prayers, hundreds of protesters broke down the door of the church and totally trashed it, before setting fire to all the documents and breaking a statue of the Virgin Mary," the local radio journalist said.

Islam is a cancer upon the earth.
Did you ever wonder what these assholes would do after Friday prayers if they didn’t have some Christian church to go burn?
Like, maybe just go home and have a nice chicken dinner or some donuts with the family?
More like a syphilis.
