Ivory Coast refugees seeking asylum in Abidjan cathedral
Catholic World News - April 08, 2011
Nearly 2,000 people have sought shelter in St. Paul's cathedral in Abidjan, the capital of Ivory Coast, to escape the fighting around the city.
Church officials are struggling to care for displaced families--including some babies, pregnant women, and wounded people--without running water or basic supplies.
