After surviving the harsh winter the amazing book made giraffe that was placed in the Canebiere street in the center of Marseilles, was burnt down by vandals during clashes with the police during and after the victory parade of Olympique De Marseille yesterday. The area was fenced and people left flowers on it and commented on the signs posted on the fence, condemning this act of vandalism and promising to reconstruct the beautiful book Giraffe.
