More Christians are being targeted and slaughtered by an Islamic terror group in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, a predominantly Christian nation in Africa.
This May alone, about 50 Christians have been mercilessly killed by Islamic jihadists, CBN News reports.
In one incident, Islamic militants stormed the eastern region of the Congo on the night of May 4, slaughtering some 34 people, including eight women and four children, according to Agence France-Press (AFP).
"Between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m., the enemy managed to get past army positions and kill peaceful residents in their homes, slashing their throats," local administrator Bernard Amisi Kalonda told AFP.
Two days later the Islamic militants attacked again, killing 13 people, including two members of the Church on the Rock mission.
