Four Catholic nuns among the dead in massacre by gunmen in Yemen

Yemen has made it back onto the front pages of the news today for all the wrong reasons, the killing of 12 innocent people including four religious sisters who were members of the Missionaries of Charity founded by Mother Teresa of Calcutta.
 
Pray for the repose of the soul of the four sisters
Sister Anselm from India, Sister Marguerite from Rwanda, Sister Judit from Kenya and Sister Reginette also from Rwanda, their driver and at least two other Ethiopian community helpers who were also killed. But also to continue to pray for the people of Yemen caught up in this war and who are in such need.

Due to the nature of the conflict, many international NGO's have had to pull out their staff and at the moment even for those who may want to enter it is impossible to get access to the country.
