“Muslims Attack Worship Service in Uganda”
by Compass Direct News   
November 11th, 2009

NAIROBI, Kenya, November 11– About 40 Muslim extremists with machetes and clubs tried to break into a Sunday worship service outside Uganda’s capital city of Kampala on Nov. 1, leaving a member of the congregation with several injuries and damaging the church building. Eyewitnesses said the extremist mob tried to storm into World Possessor’s Church International in Namasuba at 11 a.m. as the church worshipped. A member of the congregation who was taking photos of the worship service – and then the attack – was beaten, sustaining several injuries. Since then many in the church have received threats from area Muslims, but police have taken no action against the assailants, church leaders said. Congregants are living in fear, said Pastor Henry Zaake, noting that last Sunday (Nov. 8), attendance decreased from 250 to 100 people. “We have reported the matter to the central police station, and we are surprised that no action has been taken,” Pastor Zaake said. “So far no person has been arrested as a result of this mayhem. It is as if the police are not concerned about our security and lives.”
