Ten Dead In Church Bombing

11 June 2001

At least ten people were killed and 20 injured when a bomb exploded during Sunday worship at a church in the village of Jalirpar, Bangladesh on 3 June.

Many were critically wounded and the death toll was expected to rise. No one immediately admitted responsibility for the attack, but Muslim extremists were suspected. There is a large Christian community in Jalirpar and surrounding villages, about 60 miles from the capital Dhaka.

Pray for Christians wounded in this terrible explosion, pray too for the families of those who were killed. Pray that no further attacks will occur and that the Lord will heal and restore the devastated Christian community.
