INDIA: Armed men hacked to death nine people, including five members of a Catholic family, in the eastern Indian state of Jharkhand. The attackers, suspected members of the People’s Liberation Front of India, a Maoist group, killed the Catholics in Tainsera, a village in Gumla district, on Jan. 5 night. The gang is also suspected in another attack the same night killing four members of a Hindu family in neighboring Brinda Mahuatoli village. Father Cyprian Kullu, media in-charge of Gumla diocese, said the killings have shocked the Church people and that they are unable to find the motive for the crime. IE12761.1635
