(Compass) – Gunmen opened fire on the Believers Church in Lamding, Thoubal district, Manipur state, on May 29. Approximately 30 Christians gathered at the church that night were unharmed. When police refused to register a complaint on the following day, church members submitted a memorandum to local officials, asking that the chief minister of Manipur ensure protection for the church. The attack was the fourth in eight months; previous attacks took place on November 23, 2004; March 8, 2005; and April 19, 2005. On February 3, the court ordered local police to provide a security guard, but protection has been irregular at best.
