Sacred Heart cathedral in Pekhon was also hit by artillery fires, apparently without causing casualties. In both cases government forces were shelling villages suspected of harboring rebel troops. Residents had flocked to the churches for shelter.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above). About CWN news coverage.
