The London Times reports Christians have been burned alive and women repeatedly raped. Gospel for Asia's K.P. Yohannon says the Hindus want to drive all Christians from the area.

"I think there is an ethnic cleansing going on in the state of Orissa. Mass killing of Christians by radical, fundamentalists who hate Christ and the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ," Yohannon said.

Thousands of Christians like these are living in relief centers protected by government troops.

CBN's Operation Blessing visited this center, distributing blankets and clothes and ministering to the victims.
