Four Christian Teachers Murdered in Somalia

On April 13, four Christian teachers, two of them converts from Islam, were murdered by Islamic militants in Beledweyne in south-central Somalia. The four teachers, two British citizens of Somali origin-Mr. Daud Hassan Ali (64) and Ms. Rehana Ahmed (32)-and two unidentified Kenyans, were shot and killed by Islamist insurgents during a midnight raid on the Hakab Private English School. The Islamic extremist group responsible for the violence, alleged that they fired indiscriminately and that the teachers were killed in crossfire. Local people, however, believe the teachers were singled out for their suspected evangelistic work. The wife of Daud Hassan Ali alleged that her husband was targeted because he was a Muslim-born convert to Christianity.
Pray the families of those killed will rest in the knowledge that those who die in the Lord will be raised with Him. Pray the perpetrators of this attack will come to repentance and salvation.
Pray for wisdom and protection for those serving Christ in Somalia.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4

News like this makes me feel sorry for muslims! Why doing this to innocent people? I have never heard anywhere that a person was killed because he decided to be converted to muslim. This is going against human rights! If it is Allah leading you to do that, I will never accept and follow such a killer type god! NEVER!!!
