A church has been attacked by extremists in Sudan

On April 10, a group of Islamic extremists attacked Christians praying in a church in the village of Hajj Abdallah. The village is located in Gezira state, which is in Central Sudan.


According to Middle East Concern, while the church was meeting for their Palm Sunday service, the extremists launched their violent attack. They beat the pastor, named Estefanos, in addition to attacking three more women. All four victims required medical treatment 

The extremists also damaged church property in the attack, including Bibles, chairs, and tables.  

Among the extremists was a police officer who filed a court case against Pastor Estefanos earlier this year for disturbing public order. The officer also had lodged a general noise complaint against the church. Pastor Estefanos was detained but was later released on bail.
