CWN Editor's Note: The Vatican may soon announce plans for the beatification of seven Cistercian monks who were abducted and killed by Islamic militants in Algeria in 1996, according to French media reports. The report also indicates that beatification might be approved for Bishop Pierre Claverie of Oran, who was killed that year, and for several other monks, nuns, and missionary priests who were slain in Algeria in 1994 and 1995.
