In late July, Muslim extremists came to the home of a Christian in Uganda and killed him. His wife and four children hid in another room during the attack. He had recently held an open-air evangelism event, prompting threats from a local Muslim leader.
Earlier in July, extremists killed another Christian as he traveled home from a different evangelism meeting. At the event, police maintained tight security. But extremists ambushed a group of Christians as they crossed through a swamp.
Todd Nettleton with The Voice of the Martyrs USA says, “I hope the Ugandan government responds. I hope that the perpetrators are held accountable. I know in the case of one of these murders, there has been someone arrested. We will see what happens as far as the justice system, the court system, and how the case moves forward.”
