Morning prayers

Saying morning prayers can be a risky business in the Central African Republic. The risk is not that God may be asleep – but that Muslim terrorists might be very wide awake, and a little cross.

At least 15 people have died after an attack on Notre Dame de Fatima church, in Bangui, the capital of the Central African Republic. Grenades were thrown and shots fired into the church grounds, causing understandable panic. It’s the second time the church has been attacked.

The country has seen frequent incidences of inter-faith violence since 2013, when Muslim rebels deposed President Francois Bozize (pictured).
