Albanian Fresco Defaced

Although Albania has repeatedly assured me that not a single antiquity is missing, when I asked on behalf of Loot Busters, I've heard several similar stories of Byzantine or post-Byzantine frescos being vandalised. This is the first set of photos I've seen, and it looks less like attempted looting than anti-Christian iconoclasm. Albania is a mainly Muslim country, and it would be a pity if they were following in the footsteps of their kinsmen in Kosovo.
