Church people murdered in Congo

The ENInews reports today: “Violent repression of church demonstration in Congo raises concerns: After the Congolese Roman Catholic church challenged the credibility of election results in which President Joseph Kabila was declared the winner, the stabbing death of a nun and the arrest of three priests and two nuns in February are causing concern. The unease heightened after police on 16 February violently broke up a peaceful march the church had organized to demand truth about the November polls. Two weeks earlier, Sr. Mary Lilliane Mapalayi had been killed at a school in western Kasai province where she served as a treasurer.” [ENI-12-0098, 300 words]
