Christian murdered in Somalia

Catholic World News - March 05, 2013

Ahmed Ali Jimale, a 42-year-old Christian, has been murdered in Somalia, according to a web site that reports on the persecution of Christians.

The Islamist militant group Al-Shabaab is suspected in the attack.

Morning Star News reported that Jimale “would give private lessons on medicine and first aid, and as an underground Christian – as are all Christians in Somalia – he highlighted the teaching with discussions comparing the Bible and the Koran.” Before his murder, he received a phone message warning him to “stop introducing the children to foreign Christian religion.”
