Syrian bishops still in captivity; Christian homes shelled in Aleppo
Catholic World News - April 29, 2013
A week after they were kidnapped, two Syrian Orthodox prelates remained in captivity on April 29, with Church leaders unable to identify the kidnappers or their motives.
Meanwhile a Christian neighborhood in Aleppo, the city where the two Orthodox bishops were seized, was shelled by mortars, killing four people and destroying several houses. Melkite Catholic Archbishop Jean-Clement Jeanbart said: “The situation in the city is terrible; no one is safe.”
