Seven Christians Mutilated & Crucified in Sudan
Marauding bands of guerrillas have “crucified” seven Christians during a series of raids on villages in Sudan, with one man tied to a tree and mutilated while six other victims were nailed to pieces of wood and killed.
Villagers who found their bodies near the town of Nzara said it was like a “grotesque crucifixion scene”, the Catholic Herald reports.
Bishop Eduardo Hiiboro Kussala of Tombura-Yambio is appealing for international help to stop the cycle of violence and attacks by members of the Lord’s Resistance Army, saying the government at home appeared powerless against it.
In one instance guerrillas stormed into Our Lady Queen of Peace church in Ezo during a novena prayer and desecrated the Host, the altar and the building before abducting 17 people mostly in their teens and 20s. One of the captives was later tied to a tree and killed while 13 others in the group are still missing, according to Aid to the Church in Need.
