Nigeria:Christian attacked with knives for not fasting during Ramadan

 (Nigeria) A Christian man, Francis Emmanuel, on Wednesday narrowly escaped death as a gang of six youths, believed to be Muslims, armed with daggers stabbed him severally at a restaurant in Kakuri, Kaduna.

Emmanuel who almost lost his right from fending off his attackers, also sustained deep machete cuts on various parts of his body, especially around his left chin and back. The 41 year old man who spoke with journalists on his sick bed under severe pains from the attack, said he was taking his launch when the boys numbering about six descended on him on because he was not fasting.
