Breaking! THREE CHURCHES BOMBED in the country with largest Muslim population…

Three churches were bombed in Indonesia, coincidentally the country with the largest Muslim population.



More from AFP:

At least two people were killed and 13 others injured in bomb attacks, including a suicide blast, targeting churches in Indonesia’s second biggest city Surabaya, police said Sunday, the latest assault on a religious minority in the world’s biggest Muslim-majority country.

“There have been three attacks at three churches,” East Java Police spokesman Frans Barung Mangera said.

The deadly blasts all occurred within 10 minutes of each other, police said, with the first explosion at 7.30 am (0030 GMT).

Police have only given details of one attack on Santa Maria Catholic Church and there have not yet been any claims of responsibility.

“We have confirmed one died at the scene, one died at the hospital, two police officers were injured and there are some civilians injured,” Mangera said.

“In total 13 people are being treated at the hospital.”

Indonesia is home to significant numbers of Christians, Hindus and Buddhists but there are concerns over rising intolerance.

Extremists have mounted a series of attacks against Christians and other minorities in recent years.

Horrific. Please pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ who are terrorized by those possessed by evil.
