Nuns assaulted in Mexico
July 07, 2015
Three elderly nuns were assaulted at their parish convent in Matías Romero, a town of 40,000 in southern Mexico.
The June 29 incident comes nine months after a similar attack on the parish priest, according to Christian Solidarity Worldwide. “We observe with sadness and indignation that this violence has not been combated in a timely or effective manner,” said Bishop Oscar Campos Contreras of Tehuantepec. “Indifference, underhandedness, and on occasion the complicity of public institutions and society itself have tolerated and fostered the growth of criminality.”
