50 Christian churches burned by rampaging Muslims
More than 50 churches, nearly 30 houses, a school and an orphanage along with
other Christian-owned buildings have been destroyed by rampaging Muslims in
Ethiopia's Jamma region, according to reports from the Christian news service
Compass Direct and others.
"The Muslims desecrated a Quran and put it in a church compound and then
accused Christians of desecrating a Quran, then started attacking," Racho said.
"Since this happened, since it happened in a part of Ethiopia where Muslims have
the majority, the police failed to protect the Christians.
"So the Muslim mobs were able to carry out attacks in many cities," he said.
"This is unprecedented in Ethiopia because Ethiopia is considered to be a
Christian majority country. There have been attacks against Christians in the
past but it's unprecedented because of the number of churches," Racho
