Approximately 100 Christians were massacred by Muslim terrorists in the West African nation of Mali this month.
BBC reports that on June 9, armed Fulani Muslim militants invaded a predominately Christian village in Sobame Da, and killed men, women, and children.
Officials say they found at least 95 bodies. The attackers also killed animals and set fire to houses.
“About 50 heavily armed men arrived on motorbikes and pickups,” a survivor named Amadou Togo told the AFP agency. “They first surrounded the village and then attacked – anyone who tried to escape was killed.”
“No-one was spared – women, children, elderly people,” he added.
No terror group claimed responsibility for the massacre.
“Right now we have 95 dead civilians. The bodies are burned, we are continuing to look for others,” a local official told AFP.
The Christian persecution watchdog group Open Doors reported last week that every person who died was a Christian.
A security source at the scene told AFP that the village “had been virtually wiped out.”
