Catholic Church in Philippines

From Reuters:

“Sixteen people were wounded in a grenade explosion outside a Catholic church during a Christmas eve mass in the Philippines’ restive southern island of Mindanao, a priest and police said on Saturday.

Security forces across Southeast Asia are on alert ahead of the Christmas and New Year holidays, as police in Australia and Indonesia said they had foiled bomb plots and Malaysian security forces arrested suspected militants.

No group has claimed responsibility for the Mindanao attack, but Muslim rebels and Islamist extremists are known to be active in the province, where there have been blasts in the past.”

FBI Issues Warning

Recently a pro-ISIS social media website posted a publicly available list of churches in the U.S. that it was targeting for terrorist attacks.

The FBI released a statement in response. From the Washington Examiner:

“The FBI is aware of the recent link published online that urges attacks against U.S. churches,” FBI said in a statement. “As with similar threats, the FBI is tracking this matter while we investigate its credibility.”
