Al-Shabaab militants attacked the Christian parts of Maporomoko village near the Kenyan coastal town of Lamu on 31 January. Five Christians were killed and six abducted. “I am very sure that the attackers were looking for Christians,” said one Christian, shot in the hand, whose neighbour had been beheaded. Radical Muslim leaders are calling for the entire coastal region of Kenya to be populated only Muslims. For this reason they are demanding that Christians lave, particularly those in Lamu county who were allocated unused land through a government resettlement scheme (as were Muslims too). Pray for a change of attitude to Christians in and around Lamu that Muslims may welcome their presence.
