Mother Teresa Nuns Van Attacked

Orissa: Violence and Destruction Against Christians Accused of Killing Radical Hindu Leader

Bubaneshwar (AsiaNews) – Shouting "Kill Christians and destroy their institutions," thousands of Hindus from the militant Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) stormed the Pastoral Centre of the diocese of Cuttack-Bhubaneshwar, laying it waste. The same fate was visited upon a social centre in K. Nuagam, a church and parish residence in Kandhamal, and a chapel in Sundergarh. A van owned by the Sisters of Mother Teresa was attacked as it made its way to Bhavanipatni whilst another that belonged to the Daughters of the most Precious Blood was burnt in Udayagir.
