 Muslim extremists have burned down 69 Protestant churches in southwestern Ethiopia. And more then 10-thousand Christians have fled because of it. Thirty homes, a school, and an orphanage have also been burned down. The number of Christians who have fled their homes has risen in recent days to over 10,000, according to International Christian Concern, a human rights organization that assists victims of persecution. Just 11-percent of Ethiopia's population is Christian; 33 percent are Muslim.
