Church Asked to Mediate in Ecuador

Ecuador sent soldiers and police on Thursday to an isolated jungle area after a policeman was killed and several security officials injured in a violent protest against a Chinese copper exploration project amid conflicts between mining companies and indigenous communities.

CHR Comment: The article does not explain what church is involved (presumably Roman Catholic) or how it is serving in the mediation. It is ironic that the communist state, which has actively suppressed some churches in China, would turn to a church for aid in economic and trade disputes.
