Armed individuals burst into the Catholic church during mass and started firing as the congregation tried to flee

Ireland News, Ireland Headlines

"Towards 9.00am, during mass, armed individuals burst into the Catholic church," the mayor of Dablo, Ousmane Zongo, told AFP. "They started firing as the congregation tried to flee."

The gunmen then set fire to the church, several shops and a small cafe before heading to the local health centre, which they looted, burning the chief nurse's vehicle."People are holed up in their homes, nothing is going on. The shops and stores are closed. It's practically a ghost town," he added. The attack came two days after French special forces freed four foreign hostages in the north of the country in an overnight raid that cost the lives of two soldiers.

RTE only reporting this now? A complete disgrace.

Woooo rtenews actually reporting some truthful news. Amazing thumbs up for u lot

Reporting of this is appreciated. God help Christians who are persecuted. We don’t appreciate the freedom to attend Mass in peace.

absolutely disgusting , the persecution of christians throughout the world is just absolutely sickening , thousands of christians massacred in syria and iraq by hardline islamist terrorists and no one could care less , even in western countries chrstianity is openly mocked

I wonder will the Garda be asked to attend Irish masses in offer support to attendees like they did in Irish mosques after the NZ attacks?

Dreadful attack on Christians again. Persecution increasing. Christianity
