Haiti Catholic Nuns Attacked 39 Times Since November, Officials Blame Gang Members


The attacks against members of the Catholic Church have occurred throughout Haiti in six regional departments, according to an exclusive report by the Miami Herald. There have been unconfirmed reports that rapes occurred during some of the assaults, which have yet to directly result in a death but have often led to serious injury.

“Some communities have been hit three, four times,” said Herve Zamor of Conference Haitienne des Religieuses, which coordinates Catholic groups that work in Haiti. “These are communities that don’t have money. There has to be another reason. We believe there is a hidden motivation behind it. What? I don’t know.” via International Business Times
