Attacker at Indonesian Church Injures Priest

MEDAN, Indonesia — Indonesian police are investigating a suspected terror attack by a knife-wielding assailant on a priest during Mass at a Catholic church in northern Sumatra.

CHR Comment: This story has fallen out of the news. I have not seen a report about the motives of the attacker or the results of the police investigation. The article describes a growing militant Islamic movement in the largest Muslim nation, which makes this event important. AreĀ Archipeligo Muslims being radicalized?
