On November 29th, a mob of more than 500 Muslims torched a church in Ethiopia after police had destroyed the roof. The church, in the village of Qoto Baloso, Silte province, was burned down by Muslim students, accompanied by Muslim police officials. The students were shouting "Allahu Akbar!" ("god is greater") and "Jihad!"
More than 30 police officers were deployed to destroy the church, but in the face of protests from local Christians, they held back from demolishing the rest of the building.
In the end, Christians were left weeping.
