Gunmen blew open the gates of a compound housing Christian quarry workers and shot people inside two buildings and those sleeping outside. At least eleven were killed an 14 injured. Pray for the bereaved families of these workers, most of whom will have lost their bread-winner as well as their beloved husband, father or son. Parlay for the injured the they may be fully healed.
