An act of arson on Jeffrey Pullicino Orlando’s Zebbug dental clinic saw vandals place a petrol tank in front of the door⁠⁠⁠ and set it alight.

The incident took place at about 11:35pm, on Triq Dun Mikiel Xerri.

Volunteers from a band club, who were in the vicinity preparing for the local feast, intervened and controlled the fire.

No injuries were reported.

Both the Nationalist Party and the Labour Party condemned the act of vandalism, calling it a “cowardly act” and extending their solidarity to Pullicino Orlando and his family.
