Christians killed in attacks in coastal region of Kenya comment (0)

July 24, 2014


HINDI, Kenya — Two Christians near Kenya’s coast were killed July 7 following attacks by suspected Islamic extremists on two predominantly Christian villages that left more than 30 people dead, sources said.

During the July 7 attack, the assailants arrived at Covenant Church north of Hindi just after the close of a Bible study. Joseph Kangethe and Kenda Masha died when the attackers set fire to the building. A Catholic church building in the village of Gamba also was razed the same night. 

On July 5, gunmen attacked both Gamba and the village of Hindi. In Hindi assailants with guns and knives killed at least 13 people, area sources said. 

 A note scrawled on a small blackboard from a school, found near a crossroads in Hindi, suggested the assaults came in retaliation for Kenya’s military involvement in Somalia.
