CWN Editor's Note: “This is a desperate humanitarian situation, for which we are asking, indeed begging the help and solidarity of the international community,” said Bishop Luiz Fernández Lisboa of Pemba. The Southeast African nation of 27.9 million (map) is 30% Protestant, 24% Catholic, 17% Muslim, and 28% ethnic religionist; an Islamist insurgency began in 2017. [A local governor later denied reports of the mass beheading.]
