Hindu radicals attack Christian village in Orissa
Catholic World News - June 19, 2012
Some 50 Hindu extremists attacked a tiny Christian village in the eastern Indian state of Orissa on June 15, beating a Protestant pastor and 20 residents. The remaining villagers fled into the woods.
Orissa was the site of a 2008 anti-Christian pogrom that left an estimated 100 dead and 50,000 homeless.
