Read Christians Under Fire, by AFN, at Religion Today.
AFP, a French news agency, reported on Sunday that a suicide bomb attack in a restaurant in the central Somali town of Beledweyne killed at least 15 and injured an unknown number of people on Saturday, according to Open Doors USA... In the Somali Federation, Christians remain marginalized, threatened and criminalized. Ranked No. 5 on Open Doors' 2013 World Watch List, it ranks among the countries where Christians face extreme persecution -- nearly always meaning physical violence. In every sphere of life -- private, family, community and national -- discovery of being a Christian means danger; often execution on the spot."
