The Catholic Church in the Holy Land said it is praying the fire that ripped through the Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris on Monday was "not intentional".
The Catholic Church in the Holy Land said it is praying the fire that ripped through the Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris on Monday was "not intentional" while expressing solidarity with the church in France.

"We pray that there will be no injuries, for the fire not to be intentional and for least possible damage to the Church," a statement released in Jerusalem said.

"We express our solidarity with (the) Church in France," the statement added.

It came as France's deputy interior minister said that saving the Notre-Dame "is not certain" and as French fire services said they are "not sure" that the blaze could be stopped.

The Catholic Church in the Holy Land noted that the huge blaze that has engulfed the landmark took place as Catholics around the world are observing the Holy Week that precedes Easter.
