By June 14, 2005

India (MNN) — Attacks against Christians continue in India. This time it involved three missionaries from the United States. According to reports they were attacked by a group of people after their religious gathering was mistaken as a conversion ceremony, the police said.

A group of around 40 people attacked the congregation and assaulted the missionaries late Sunday night near Mumbai.

Two of the missionaries, Philip Allan and Clover Edward, were injured in the attack, and the third, Richard Jenal, was abducted but later set free.

Two people have been arrested in connection with the case, but have been released.

Attacks against Christians have increased in recent months because of the large number of the majority religion turning to Christ. Pray for boldness for believers in India, despite the increasing number of attacks.
