CWN Editor's Note: After Chad’s interim leader, Mahamat Idriss D├ęby Itno, extended his power for two years, demonstrations erupted—resulting in a violent crackdown.

“We express our regret and our indignation” for the “unjustified violence” against the protestors, the nation’s bishops said, as they called on Christians to “pray incessantly for the reconciliation of hearts in order to promote peace in our country.”

The north-central African nation of 17.4 million (map) is 57% Muslim, 35% Christian (20% Catholic), and 7% ethnic religionist.
