Sagrada Familia reopens after 'arson attack'

One of Spain's most famous landmarks, the Sagrada Familia basilica in Barcelona, has been reopened after a suspected arson attack on Tuesday.

More than 1,500 visitors were ordered to leave the church and four people were treated for smoke inhalation after a fire was started in Antoni Gaudi's unfinished masterpiece.

A 55-year-old man was arrested, after allegedly igniting priest's robes in the sacristy.
