Missionaries Burned Alive

January 18, 2008

Christian Aid just received more grim news on the violence against Christians in the Kandhamal District of Orissa. Four different ministries supported by Christian Aid echo these tragic reports:

At least four Christian missionaries have been burned alive. At least 200 people are still missing, 100 of whom are presumed dead. Conditions for victims are still squalid, contributing even more to their misery. Relief camps are sending them back to villages where their homes were destroyed – with no food, no water, no means of shelter, and no clothing (except what they´ve had on their backs on since December 24th).
