Muslims Kill One, Burn 59 Churches in Ethiopia; More Than 4,000 Christians Displaced by Attacks

The Compass Direct website reports today (March 12, 2011) that at least one Christian has been killed and several others injured, as thousands of Islamic extremists set fire to 59 churches and at least 28 homes in western Ethiopia during the past week.

More than 4,000 Christians in and around Asendabo, Jimma Zone have been displaced as a result of attacks that began on March 2, after Muslims accused a Christian of desecrating the Quran by tearing up a copy, sources said.

The atrocity is continuing, and more people are suffering.

The Christian killed -- a member of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church -- has not yet been identified.
