A Puerto Banus restaurant was destroyed in an arson attack yesterday morning

Two armed and masked men burst into Wallace Restautant, located in the Puerta de Banus Commercial Centre at 2.30am and started a fire that completely gutted the local.

Police are investigating the theory that the blaze was the result of a settling of scores between criminal gangs and that the restaurant, that stayed open until 7am, was allegedly operating as a high class brothel for North African clients.
