Syrian monk killed as rebels overrun monastery
Catholic World News - June 24, 2013
A Syrian hermit was killed by gunfire at a Franciscan monastery in Syria.
Father Francois Mourad, who was a guest at St. Anthony of Padua monastery, may have been killed by an errant bullet, or he may have been deliberately shot by rebel troops who ransacked the monastery.
