During the evening of May 26th, the Burmese military shot up St. Joseph’s Church in the town of Demoso, Myanmar, breaking windows and putting holes in the church walls, reports UCANews.com. Thankfully, no one was inside at the time.
However, just five days prior, the Burmese military attacked the Sacred Heart Church, also in Kayah state. That attack killed four and wounded eight refugees who were sheltering in the church.
Fighting between the military and local resistance groups continues to rage in the eastern part of the country since the February 1 coup. According to Open Doors World Watch List, Myanmar is the 18th worst nation in the world for the persecution of Christians,
