In the latest instance of Christian persecution in Libya, Islamists torched a church attended by Egyptian Christians in Benghazi on Friday, CBN News reports. Witnesses said militants fired shots in the air before setting fire to the church in the downtown area of the eastern Libyan city. The fire caused no casualties, but burned the two-story building to the ground. A security official in Benghazi says his forces stopped the attackers before they could do more damage. The attack comes only a week after around 100 Christians in the predominantly Muslim country were detained and tortured by Islamist militias for allegedly spreading the gospel.
