FLASH from COMPASS DIRECT NEWS

News from the Frontlines of Persecution

 

Correction:

In Compass Direct News’ Jan. 25, “Two Catholic Priests Kidnapped in Sudan,” it is not Islamic militia that abducted the priests, but South Sudanese rebel militia – supported by the Islamic government in Khartoum, but made up of South Sudanese. Our apologies. – Eds.

 

>>>>>>>>>> 

 

As I read the correction, HUGE ramifications came to my mind.  The Sudan government (in the North) is supporting extremists in South Sudan to continue persecution of Christians and anyone supporting the new South Sudan government. Probably has some greater degree of deniability for the north if it’s southerners attacking southerners Tragic.  Waiting for the US Govt to respond to the USCIRF recommendations made last month.  Adding my voice to the many prayers.
