World in Brief

  • CAR: attacks

    Barnabas Fund

    On 17 February, more than 14 homes and churches were torched and missionary centres vandalised in the area around Kaga-Bandoro, in the north-central part of the Central African Republic.

    Local Christians said that many pastors fled to the town of Kaga-Bandoro, where another church was burned.

  • Egypt: forgiveness

    Bible Society’s Newswatch (BBC)

    Hate, anger and grief were all part of the reaction in Egypt to the news of mass beheadings of 21 Christian Egyptians in Libya in February.

    But one Christian Egyptian shared a different message, one of forgiveness and peace. A video by Anne Alfred, a young Christian singer, calling for mercy instead of hate has been watched over half a million times and messages of support and solidarity poured in from Egypt's Christians and Muslims alike.
