Attack on church in Indonesia
Catholic World News - October 24, 2012
Unknown attackers attempted to burn down a Pentecostal church in Poso, a city of 40,000 on the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia. No one was injured in the attack, which partially damaged the church and the pastor’s residence.
Sulawesi was the site of violence between Muslims and Christians between 1997 and 2001 and has been the scene of renewed violence in recent weeks.
