I find the timing of this highly unusual.
- In the midst of a spate of attacks against churches in France
- Renovations only started a few days ago (could be a deliberate attack by someone working inside the contracting crew)
CATHOLIC CHURCHES ARE BEING DESECRATED ACROSS FRANCE—AND OFFICIALS DON’T KNOW WHY
France has seen a spate of attacks against Catholic churches since the start of the year, vandalism that has included arson and desecration.
Vandals have smashed statues, knocked down tabernacles, scattered or destroyed the Eucharist and torn down crosses, sparking fears of a rise in anti-Catholic sentiment in the country.
Last Sunday, the historic Church of St. Sulpice in Paris was set on fire just after midday mass on Sunday, Le Parisienreported, although no one was injured. Police are still investigating the attack, which firefighters have confidently attributed to arson.
Even this article doesn't convey the enormity of what is going on. In France, three Churches are being desecrated every single day.

The prime suspects in these attacks are exactly who you'd expect in a country like France. A lot remains to be determined in the case of Notre Dame, but I have a feeling they may suppress the truth if they feel it could lead to 'civil instability' -- the riots are bad enough as it is.
