Church Bombed
A Catholic church in Aleppo, Syria, was struck by a mortar shell during Sunday Mass on October 27, causing several minor injuries to members of the congregation.

The shell damaged the roof of St. Francis church, in the Aziziyeh district of Aleppo. But because the explosion was on the roof rather than inside the building, there were no serious casualties. Seven people were hurt by falling debris, the Fides news service reported.

The mortar round was evidently fired by rebels seeking to overthrow the Assad regime.
