Christian Persecution Especially Severe as Militants Continue Assault in Cabo Delgado

[184] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Attacked Christians.

Islamist insurgents recently led a three-day siege that left several people dead, hundreds trapped and many missing. In March, hundreds of al-Shabab attackers entered Palma completely unannounced, entering houses and killing whomever they found. While many were affected by the violence, the situation for Christians was especially severe, as the Islamists brutally murder those who cannot quote from the Quran and/or give explanation to the tenets of Islam. This attack is the latest in a years-long conflict as the Islamic insurgents seek to establish a caliphate governed by Sharia law, and it may signal a shift in the intensity of the violence. “This recent attack reflects another level of escalation in what is going on,” said the VOM field leader for the region. “It really emboldens them to do even more.” Pray for our brothers and sisters in Mozambique who are suffering at the hands of radical Muslims. Pray for strength, comfort and protection as they bear witness to Christ amid the violence.
