A group known as the Feminist Autonomous Cell has posted a series of letters online taking credit for a string of church attacks in Germany.

The attacks began December 27, with the latest occurring overnight between January 8 and 9. The first took place in the town of Tübingen, when someone set fire to a vehicle parked outside an evangelical church and spray painted the building.

In a letter claiming responsibility for the attack, the group said the church showed "anti-feminist attitudes." The message appeared on a website called indymedia shortly after the incident.

A few days later, the group posted again on the site, taking credit for setting fire to a German journalist's vehicle. Some columns by journalist Gunnar Schupelius, whose SUV was set ablaze, have espoused pro-life convictions.

Most recently, the group wrote that they were culpable for splattering paint on a church in Berlin, citing the church's hosting of an event connected to the March for Life.
