CWN Editor's Note: Two more Catholic priests were kidnapped in Nigeria on July 2, less than a week after the funeral of another priest who was killed in a kidnap attempt.

Fathers Peter Udo and Philemon Oboh were stopped on the road as they returned from Benin City; their abductors fired shots in the air and blocked their car. Police are hunting for the kidnappers.
