Two Catholic clerics in the Central African Republic were bound and robbed by armed men on Friday, Sept. 27.
Italian missionary Fr. Beniamino Gusmeroli, and Fr. Martial Mengue, a Central African deacon, had their rooms ransacked and valuables stolen.
The incident took place in the mission of Our Lady of Fatima Bouar, in the northwest of the country.
The Archbishop of Bangui, Mgr. Dieudonne Nzapalainga, said: “This rebellion has brought doubt and mistrust in relations between Christians and Muslims. It has shaken the roots of mutual trust that characterised our life together, once harmonious and smooth. Christians have paid massively and continue to pay with their lives, property and dignity for the evils of Séléka.”
