Emboldened by the government's push for a Sudan based on Islamic law following the secession of South Sudan, Muslims long opposed to a church near Khartoum have attacked Christians trying to finish constructing their building, Compass Direct News reports. The Sudanese Church of Christ has continued to meet on Sundays in a building without a roof despite opposition from area Muslims and local authorities, and church members were recently attacked by extremists claiming that Christianity was no longer an accepted religion in the country. Muslims in the north, where an estimated 1 million Christians live, "want to reduce or restrict the number of churches, so they can put more pressure on believers," one church leader said.
