Paraguay’s bishops condemn murders, call for calm

August 22, 2013

The bishops of Paraguay have condemned the kidnapping and murder of five security guards, a crime reportedly committed by the Paraguayan People’s Army, a leftist guerilla organization.

“The Church urges the authorities to make every effort to clarify the facts, identify those responsible and apply the penalties provided by law,” the bishops said in a statement provided to the Fides news agency. “At the same time, [the Church] calls on all citizens to work for harmony and pacification of spirits.”
