Sudan under pressure
PRESSURE is being placed on the Sudanese premier to make changes to the country's constitution to protect Christians .
The leaders of 10 Christian denominations have written to the country's leader expressing dismay at the treatment of Christians over the Easter period.
Over 100 Christians were arrested following unrest sparked by the cancellation of an inter-denominational open-air Easter service, that was to have been led by German evangelist, Reinhard Bonnke. It was relocated outside the capital, Khartoum.
CAFOD HAS joined forces with 42 other international agencies in a call to help Kenya's hungry millions.
After years of drought, more than four million vulnerable people in Kenya are still facing starvation. Food shortages in the north and east of the country are continuing to cause serious problems. Farmers have not recovered from crop failure, and hundreds of thousands of camels, cattle and goats have died, depriving communities of their only source of livelihood.
A spokesman for the Catholic aid agency , Stephen Lloyd, said: "Children need milk and other foods to help them grow.
"When this milk is not available, they are at great risk of malnutrition, stunted growth and even death."
