Accused killer of Christian allowed to strike again in Vietnam

( - On April 25, a Christian man, Koua Lo, was beaten in Meo Vac district, Ha Giang province, northwest Vietnam by a local man angered by Koua's conversion to Christianity.

Koua sustained severe head injuries and remained critically injured at last report. The assailant, Lao Lia Po, is still at large and has not been charged. Lao previously attacked his own mother on February 3 because of her Christian faith, killing her by smashing her head in. Police only held him overnight before releasing him without charge. The next day he issued death threats against other local Christians.

The approximately 100 Christian families in the area have reportedly suffered repeated harassment and abuse for their faith. The government is often complicit in attacks or else turns a blind eye to the mistreatment of believers.

Ask God to give healing and strength to Koua. Pray that Loa will come to repentance and find salvation in Christ. Pray that Christians in Vietnam will continue to put their hope in the Lord as the One who upholds their cause (Psalm 146).
