(Ethiopia)–Meanwhile, the Voice of the Martyrs has learned that hundreds of evangelical Christians were assaulted by an enraged mob in the Ethiopian city of Merhawe, northwest of Addis Ababa. VOM sources report that the local Ethiopian Orthodox church is believed to have coordinated the attack. Hundreds of evangelical families have been driven from their homes and are being sheltered in a nearby church. Pray for the safety of the VOM workers and church leaders.
