Report says the number of Christians KILLED over their faith has NEARLY DOUBLED in last year!
In a new report from the World Watch Monitor, the humanitarian group says that the number of Christians who were killed over their faith has nearly doubled in the last year:
It is a challenge to document violent incidents targeting Christians, especially in countries where access to information is restricted, or media reporting is insufficient. This table is based on research by the World Watch List team, assistance by Open Doors’ networks in the field, and help from external experts.
The 12-month reporting period ending 31 Oct., 2015 shows an overall increase in the numbers of Christians killed for faith-related reasons and churches attacked in comparison to last year. The 2015 World Watch List reported 4,344 Christians killed for faith-related reasons and 1,062 churches attacked. The 2016 list documents 7,106 Christians killed and 2,425 churches attacked.
All incidents listed here occurred during the WWL 2016 reporting period: 1 Nov. 2014 – 31 Oct. 2015.
