Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

2014-08-13

While the world's attention is centered on the increasing violence in Iraq, attacks against Christians continue in Nigeria. Since the beginning of August, Christians have been targeted twice.

The first attack carried out by Boko Haram happened during the invasion of Gwoza, a northeastern city located in Borno. According to World Watch Monitor, roughly 100 people were killed in the attack, where the majority of the population is Christian. 

A few days earlier, a group of armed insurgents attacked a Church in Ungwar Poppo, a town in the state of Kaduna. The attackers fired shots on parishioners who were attending Mass. A parish security guard was killed and several others were left wounded in the attack.

Members of the Fulani tribe claimed responsibility for the attack. Local sources say that Boko Haram provided weapons to carry it out.
