Parish burned down in Nigeria
Catholic World News - April 01, 2014
Muslim youth in Katsina State, which is located in northern Nigeria, burned down a Catholic church to protest an examination question that was allegedly critical of Muhammad, according to an Associated Press report.
The Premium Times, an online publication based in Nigeria’s capital, reported that the youth set fire to a second church and “were attacking people and businesses indiscriminately.”
