Ecumenism

MOGADISHU (Reuters) – The killing of an Italian Catholic nun in Mogadishu on Sunday may well be linked to anger among Muslims about Pope Benedict’s recent remarks on Islam, a senior source among Somalia’s Islamists said.

“There is a very high possibility the people who killed her were angered by the Catholic Pope’s recent comments against Islam,” the source told Reuters.

The source, however, offered no specific evidence to support that motive.

Gunmen shot and killed the nun, who worked at a children’s hospital in north Mogadishu, and her bodyguard.
