The persecution of Christians continues to increase in Sudan, where attacks on Christians and their houses of worship continue. Recent reports have emerged that three churches- a Catholic church, an Orthodox church, and a Protestant church were all attacked and burned down a month after they were rebuilt after being burned down in December 2019.
According to a local rights group in Sudan, three churches in a town were burnt down in December 2019 and quickly rebuilt, only to be burnt down again earlier this month.
Human Rights and Development Organization said that a Catholic church, an Orthodox church, and a Sudan Internal Church in Bout were burnt down on both Dec. 28 and Jan. 16; the church buildings had been rebuilt in the interim. Bout is the capital of Tadamoun district in Blue Nile state, more than 300 miles southeast of Khartoum.
According to HUDO, the alleged arsons were reported to Bout police each time, “but police did not investigate further or put preventive measures.” (source)
