Berlin family faces eviction for loud night prayers

`A seven-member family faces eviction from an east Berlin apartment tower after neighbours complained about loud prayer sessions that keep the whole building awake at night, a German newspaper said on Thursday.

“I really don’t want to disturb the neighbours but the high volume is needed in the battle against the devil,” Pierre D., the 42-year-old father of the Christian family, told Bild newspaper. He is fighting an eviction order in court.

Neighbours told Bild the screams and singing that are part of the family prayers in the second storey sometimes begin at 2:30 a.m. and can be heard all the way up to the fifth floor.’
