Abidjan, February 29, 2012
|Church of the Resurrection, Abidjan, Ivory Coast.|
The militants broke into the churchyard by climbing over the fence. From there the criminals entered the house where the church rector, Priest Jeremiah Behanzin, resides with his wife and child.
The intruders broke down the door of the priest’s apartment using the butts of their machine guns and woke the family, then began looting the house.
The looting spree lasted two hours. The robbers took away whatever they could find of value, including two notebook computers. Also stolen were the radio, battery, and other objects from the priest’s automobile.
