Christian funeral attacked in southern Ethiopia

by Staff
August 22, 2008

(christiansunite.com) - On July 30, a group of Muslims along with members of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church attacked believers in the town of Metto, Selte region while they were arranging to bury a local Christian man.

The attackers also filled in the grave plot meant for Teshome Alyeleb (45). The believers fled in fear for their lives. Teshome's family members appealed to the local government but no action was taken to allow them to conduct a proper funeral and burial. Finally, after having to keep their loved one's body in their home for four days, the family laid Teshome to rest in a town 96 km from their home.

Pray that the Lord will give peace and comfort to Teshome's family. Pray for strength for Christians in this Muslim-majority region who are being harassed and mistreated for their faith in Christ.

For more information on the persecution facing Christians in Ethiopia, go to www.persecution.net/ethiopia.htm.
