Somali Christian woman killed for refusing to wear veil
November 5, 2009
(christiansunite.com) - Amina Muse Ali (45) was murdered in her home in Galkayo, Puntland region, Somalia on the evening of October 19 by three masked members of Suna Waljameca, a militant Islamic group.
Ali had earlier received threats from militants for not wearing a veil to show her adherence to Islam.
They had reportedly been monitoring Ali for some time as they suspected her of being a Christian. Ali, a long-time believer, had been actively involved in the underground church and the Somali Christian Brothers' Organization, a movement that has been targeted several times by Muslim militants.
Pray for those mourning the loss of Amina Muse Ali. Pray for the small, suffering community of believers in Somalia. Pray that those who persecute Christians in Somalia will know Christ's love, forgiveness and blessing through the lives of believers (Romans 12:14, 21).
