(Worthy News) - Gunmen who stormed a Catholic-run retirement home in Aden, Yemen, went from room to room handcuffing their victims before fatally shooting 16 staff members, including four nuns.

According to international Christian Concern, the home was a charity created by Mother Theresa that was run by nuns who were continuing her work in the region.

In addition to the nuns, the gunmen also killed nurses, security guards and the home's housekeeping staff.

Pope Francis described the attack as "diabolical" and called the nuns modern-day martyrs who gave their blood for Christ's work.

The gunmen escaped after the massacre and have yet to be found.
