NIGER – Muslim Mob Burns Christian Church

A mob of Muslim activists ransacked and set fire to a Christian church in Niger this weekend to protest the arrest of an influential imam.

On Saturday night, a large group of protesters in Maradi, Niger torched the Assembly of God church along with the pastor’s car. 

Witnesses said that groups of Muslim demonstrators laid barricades across the road and burnt old tires in protest of the arrest of Cheick Rayadoune, the imam of the mosque of Zaria.
