    In the latest of several attacks by the Islamic extremists on Christian communities in Chibok County, Borno state, ISWAP militants stormed Kautikari town, not only shooting people dead but looting properties and destroying many homes. So far eight bodies have been recovered, many people were still missing and the assailants had also burned down a military base.

  • Kenya: Christians facing starvation

    Four rainy seasons in a row have failed in northern Kenya, making the drought the worst since 1981 and declared a national disaster by the Kenyan Government.

    Water is increasingly hard to find, cattle are dying and even camels are struggling to survive. Half a million Kenyans are at risk of starvation, according to the World Food Programme. Meanwhile, prolonged hunger and malnutrition have made people prone to diseases, their weakened bodies unable to resist infections. In this Muslim-dominated part of Kenya, Christians are usually left out when government food relief is distributed.
