(Worthy News) - Unidentified men last week stoned a house full of worshippers for an hour in a predominantly Buddhist village in Burma (Myanmar), injuring six people, sources said.

In Kanta Kawn Township, Magway Region in central Burma, 27 Christians were holding a Christmas worship service on Dec. 17 when at 8 p.m. stones began hitting them in Paw Lwe village, the homeowner told Morning Star News. Last year area Buddhists told Christian families to leave the village after a similar attack, he said.

U Wah Daw said that some stones damaged a wall of his home and injured the chest, back and hands of some worshippers, including the pastor. [ Source: Morningstar News (Read More...) ]
