CWN Editor's Note: A Moroccan man was arrested by Spanish police on January 26 and charged with two attacks on Catholic churches, which left one man dead another wounded.

Wielding a machete, the suspect—who had been living under a deportation order for months—wounded a priest at one parish church in the city of Algeciras. He then went to another church, jumped on the altar, and chased a carekeeper out of the church, killing him in the town square.
