Three pagans in the African nation of Burundi entered a monastery, took three nuns, raped all of them and stabbed them all to death. The specific religion of these evil men has not yet been announced, but they are pagans nonetheless, since only a pagan would do this. According to one report:
Three Italian Roman Catholic nuns were murdered in twin attacks on Sunday and Monday in their convent in the north of Bujumbura, police said.
Sisters Olga Raschietti and Lucia Pulici, aged 75 and 82, were stabbed to death on Sunday afternoon, and Sister Bernadetta Boggia, 79, died in a second attack early on Monday morning.
Police spokesman Colongel Helmegilde Harimenschi said all three were also raped, adding that three men were being questioned over the killings
Boggia may have been killed by an accomplice to the first attack who hid in the convent, police sources said. The suspected killer in the Sunday attack was seen fleeing the building with a knife in his hand, according to a local government administrator.
Burundian Vice-President Prosper Bazombanza said the government was “appalled by such barbarity,” and promised that every effort would be made to find the killers.
Bazombanza also expressed his concern at the fact that a second deadly attack had occurred in the convent within the space of a few hours, saying the government would “shed light on this matter as quickly as possible.”
Motive still unknown
The Catholic diocese of Parma, to which the nuns were attached, said that the first two murders appeared to have been “the tragic outcome of an armed robbery by a mentally unbalanced person.” However, Burundi police have questioned this account, pointing out that no money was taken.
