PARIS (Reuters) - There is nothing to suggest at this stage that a fire in the 15-century cathedral in the western French city of Nantes was started deliberately, France’s interior minister said on Tuesday.
“At this hour, nothing suggests that this is a criminal act,” Gerald Darmanin told lawmakers in parliament. “An investigation has been opened. It could be that this was accidental.”
