News Release: Church Attacked by Terrorists in Cape Town

Ten Christians were murdered and 49 wounded during a terrorist attack on the packed St. James Church of England in Kenilworth, Cape Town during the Sunday evening service on July 25th.

At about 7:30 pm while the congregation of about 1000 people sang a hymn, four black men dressed in overalls and balaclava's (ski masks) burst into the church, lobbed two hand grenades and opened fire with AK 47 assault rifles on the packed congregation.
