Four nuns of the congregation of Charity Missionary founded by Mother Teresa were shot dead in Yemen by unknown gunmen who attacked the convent and the home for the elderly in the southern city of Aden today Friday 4th March, 2016.
The nuns are among twelve (12) other deaths that were casualties of the attack. It’s said that two of the nuns massacred were Rwandans and the other two were an Indian nun and a Kenyan nun.
The gunmen were not identified as the country have been in a civil war over time now. But all hands points to the Islamist State and al-Qaida supporters who have recently conducted a number of attacks in the south of Yemen.
“Run! Run!!” was what a nun who survived the attack said she heard a Yemeni guard shouting while she hid herself in a refrigerator in the store room.
