(Compass) – Christian leaders held an emergency meeting in Manipur , India , on April 22 to plan their response to an attack on a church in Thoubal district. The Rev. S. Prim Vaiphei said a mob of 200 Hindus overpowered a police patrol and set fire to the Believer’s Church on April 19. Damage to the building, still under construction after previous attacks, was estimated at around 445,000 rupees ($10,350). Following a similar attack in November 2004, authorities ordered police protection for the church during the construction phase. Villagers have now asked church members to abandon the premises or “face the consequences.”
