Christians are ‘crucified’ in guerrilla raids by Lord’s Resistance Army

Marauding bands of guerrillas have crucified seven Christians during a series of raids on villages in Sudan.

One of the men was tied to a tree and mutilated while six other victims were nailed to pieces of wood fastened to the ground and killed.

Villagers who found their bodies near the town of Nzara said it was like a “grotesque crucifixion scene”.
