(Worthy News) - Two Ethiopian pastors have been beheaded in Sebeta, near the capital Addis Ababa, in an outburst of violence against Christians at the end of October, reported a Barnabas Fund contact.
The contact said that the situation on the ground has become “quite challenging for Christians” and many churches have been burnt this year. There is also an unverified report that a group of Christians has been forced out of the majority-Muslim town of Ginir, located 303 miles south-east from the capital.
The army was called in to restore order after 67 people were killed and 213 wounded in Addis Ababa during several days of unrest. [ Source: Barnabas Fund (Read More...) ]
