Some difficult and sad news. There have been riots and killings for a while in Mombasa as the police (sometimes heavy-handed) try to find instigators in the mosques. A few days ago one of the parishioners of Rev Charles (those in Christ Church, Victoria, Canada know him) lost a son. The mob apparently rampaged through town demanding those they met to recite the Muslim affirmation of faith. Those unable to do so (because Christian or other) were killed.
This morning our young doctor in the far north called to say that a group from his community (medical or security people is not clear) were traveling from Mandera to Nairobi. They were ambushed and the non-Muslims killed. He says things are very tense.
