Church in Tunisia declares day of prayer, fasting for peace

Catholic World News - August 26, 2013

Taking note of “the painful and unstable events that are taking place in several Arab countries, the Middle East and Africa,” Archbishop Ilario Antoniazzi of Tunis declared August 25 a special day of prayer and fasting for peace, “in solidarity with all our brothers and sisters who are suffering, Christians or Muslims.”

The prelate also asked “our sick brothers and sisters to offer their sufferings to the Lord for peace.”

There are only 21,000 Catholics in the nation of 10.7 million; 98% of Tunisians are Muslim.
