Service draws attention to persecution, killing of African Christians

 | 

A June 29 prayer service at Holy Family Church in New York City not only recalled the sacrifices of African martyrs in church history but also paid tribute to those who have died recently for their faith.

"Recent events that have taken place in different parts of Africa show that there is no lack of men and women who continue to bear witness to their faith in God by offering their very lives," said Archbishop Charles Balvo, who is apostolic nuncio to Kenya and South Sudan.

British schools must root out extremists, prime minister says

 | 

Headmasters and teachers at Britain's privately owned and state-run schools have been ordered to be on the lookout for Muslim extremists attempting to "groom" youngsters to their cause.

The new legal requirement comes after terrorists killed some 30 British tourists at Sousse, one of Tunisia's best-known holiday resorts, on Friday.

It was the worst terrorist attack against Britons since 2005, when 52 people were killed in a series of bomb attacks in London.
