A Christian is killed every five minutes because of his faith

Eleven Christians are killed every hour. One every five minutes. Christians are not persecuted only where ISIS is present in Iraq and Syria. Whoever believes in Jesus Christ is also persecuted and killed in Nigeria, India, North Korea, Somalia and Pakistan.

Mons. Joseph D. Bagobiri, bishop of Kafanchan in Nigeria, denounced the death of more than 12,000 Christians and the destruction of more than 2,000 churches in eight years, writes Matteo Carnieletto and Marco Indini for Occhi della Guerra.
