Burma: army ransacks church, burns Bibles
Catholic World News - March 27, 2012
Soldiers in Myanmar (Burma) have recently disrupted an evangelical conference, burned Bibles, and ransacked a Protestant church in Chin State in the western part of the nation.
“These incidents illustrate that there is still a very long way to go in Burma’s reform process, and for that reason, the international community should be cautious about lifting too many sanctions too quickly,” said Benedict Rogers of Christian Solidarity Worldwide.
