  • Description

    A bomb exploded outside a Paris mansion on Thursday (22 January) seriously injuring two people.

    The injured -- members of the controversial religious Moon Sect who were living in the building -- were Ann Britt Kommbdal, a Norwegian girl aged 25 and Arnold Van den Keuven a 24-year--old Dutchman.

    No-one has claimed responsibility for the blast which blew out the whole wall of one room but Church authorities and parental organisations have been attacking the Sect recently as having a bad influence on young people.

    Last week a 22-year-old woman was snatched by her parents from a Moon community in Lyons. Her mother claimed she had been bewitched from the day she joined the sect.

    The sect was founded by South Korean engineer Moon Son Myong in 1955. He has an estimated 500,000 members in South Korea, 300,000 members in the United States but only 500 in france.
