Christians Thrown Overboard By Muslims in Mediterranean Sea

(Worthy News)-- Police in Sicily reported that Muslim migrants had thrown 12 Christians overboard during a Mediterranean crossing from Libya.

According to the AP, police had detained 15 Muslims suspected in the assault after interviewing survivors from Nigeria and Ghana who were brought to Palermo last week after being rescued at sea.

The survivors said they had boarded a rubber boat on the Libyan coast with 105 others in order to make the crossing from Libya. But during the voyage, migrants from Nigeria and Ghana — who police believed to be Christians — were threatened with being abandoned at sea by migrants from the Ivory Coast, Senegal, Mali and Guinea Bissau.

Eventually the threat was carried out and 12 migrants were pushed overboard. According to police, the victims had "professed the Christian faith while the aggressors were Muslim".

The Muslims were later charged with multiple homicides aggravated by religious hatred.

The surviving Christians only managed to stay on board the boat by forming a "human chain" to resist further assaults.

  1. They claim there was a 'row'?! Oh that old lie again. There was, I am certain, no 'row'... The Christians were doubtless already doomed when they set foot on that boat. But of course, they can't put their side of the story because, like millions of other Christians at the hands of these monsters, they are dead. Disgusting. I'm sure to the mainstream media, the Islamists' word will be taken as true, as they love to think Christians are to blame for everything Islamists do to them.
