About 50 Turkish youths are said to have stormed and smashed the Catholic church Antonskirche outside the Austrian capital Vienna on Thursday night.
Muslims shouted “Allahu akbar” as they kicked benches and the church’s confessional.
The background is the events in France about Muhammad caricatures, states Courier.
The young people were dispersed when the pastor called the police.
No one was physically injured during the Islamist attack and the police are now reviewing surveillance footage from the scene, writes RT.
The young people are said to have met at a square earlier in the day where they shouted “Islamic slogans” and fired firecrackers.
On Twitter condemns the incident by Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz:
“All Christians must be able to exercise their faith freely and safely in Austria! We will resolutely continue the fight against political Islam and we show no false tolerance. Thank you to all the police for their commitment,” he wrote.
