NAIROBI, May 18 (Xinhua) — The UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) on Thursday condemned last week’s attack on a Christian radio station in Nairobi, which left one person dead and two others seriously injured.

“I condemn this murderous attack that could so easily trigger inter-communal violence. No religion and no community win when violence is used to settle differences,” UNESCO Director-General Koichiro Matsuura said in a statement.

“This aggression is unacceptable for several reasons: first, itis an intolerable attack on press freedom, a right that is at the heart of UNESCO’s mandate; it also carries the seeds of new misunderstanding and violence, yet dialogue between civilizations and religions is the only option for humanity,” he added.

The workers said the radio station was attacked at about 10.30 p.m. (1930 GMT), soon after a program that discusses Christianity and Islam had been aired.
