Sudan orders leading priest to leave nation

Catholic World News - April 15, 2013

Sudanese authorities have ordered the secretary-general of the Sudan Catholic Bishops’ Conference and two religious brothers – one Egyptian, the other French – to leave the overwhelmingly Muslim nation.

Following his expulsion, Father Santino Morokomomo Maurino arrived in South Sudan, which became independent in 2011.

The priest said that “Christians are being persecuted because the regime wants to Islamize the country and eliminate the Christian presence,” the Sudan Catholic Radio Network reported.
