Our Beveloved Bishop Who is Now in Heaven
Nairobi, Jul. 16, 2003 (CWNews.com) - Somali Christian leaders have charged that Bishop Salvatore Colombo of Mogadishu, was killed in cold blood 12 years ago, at the order of the former government of President Siad Barre. Members of the Somali Christian Community made the disclosure during a meeting of the Somali National Reconciliation Conference, being held in Nairobi, Kenya. The Christian representatives, who are still fighting for recognition as the talks that have brought together leaders of Somalia's many conflicting factions, told CWN that Bishop Colombo was killed after defying the Barre government on the purchase of land for an impoverished tribe.
