In Alaba, Hajji Husman Mohamed and his family were severely beaten, including his pregnant wife. For more than an hour, the attackers physically abused everyone in the house, VOM wrote. Hajji, a former Muslim Imam, has reportedly suffered several times since his conversion to Christ in March 2003. Last December, all of his property was taken from him, including his furniture, cattle, and a year's supply of grain.

Mob led by 7 Muslim clerics brutally attack 50 or more Christians (including converts). Previous conversion of 2 also led to violent riots and beatings instigated by Muslim leaders
. . .
In 2005, two prominent Muslims in Henno converted to Christianity: ‘H,’ a well known Muslim leader, and ‘M,’ the son of a well-respected Muslim tribal leader. The two conversions angered Muslim leaders in the surrounding region.
. . .
“The worship service gained the attention of the whole village, including Muslim leaders who responded violently by instigating a riot, using gangs in the area. The gangs were carrying local weapons such as knives, stones, and metal rods.
. . .
According to ICC, “H” was beaten badly, receiving five deep wounds to his head. Because he was beaten with an iron rod, he was also missing teeth. He suffered deep lacerations to his legs, where several ligaments protruded from the skin. “H’s” daughter-in-law was pregnant at the time but lost her baby because she was also severely beaten.
In total, twelve people were seriously injured; five others were found to have lacerations on their body and received medical treatment in Shashamene Kuyera Hospital. “H” also received care and has recovered from the attack.The release went on to say that the Christians reported the riot to the district government administrative office, which took no legal action. Instead, the officers warned Christians not to worship in a region that is predominately Muslim. It is important to note that all officers who heard the case were in fact Muslim.

Christian convert forcibly taken to a mosque on suspicion that he had left Islam. Attacked and stabbed by three Muslim men for refusing to enter and pray
. . .
A Christian leader who wants to remain anonymous told ICC, “We know that the detained assailant will soon be released. One of the imprisoned Muslims even threatened to attack me once he was released. We must suffer for the sake of the gospel. What we need from you is to pray for us.”
