Icons at Greek Orthodox Church in Lynn Vandalized Over Weekend

Officials at a Greek Orthodox church in Lynn, Massachusetts, are expressing dismay at the vandalism of two icons over the weekend.

Arthur Argeros, president of the St. George Greek Orthodox Church says icons of St. George and the Virgin Mary were found vandalized Saturday.

They were spray painted with an upside down cross and the number "666."

Argeros told The Boston Globe it's the first time the church has been targeted and "parishioners were very upset."

Police were notified and are investigating.

The city plans to send a professional power washer to clean off the remaining graffiti.
