Samaritan's Purse Bible School Bombed in Sudan

Ad Feedback

A Christian school built by Franklin Graham's charity Samaritan's Purse was bombed in Sudan, Friday.

Eight bombs were dropped on the Heiban Bible College in South Kordofan state near the border with South Sudan.

Two school buildings were destroyed in the attack. The group called it a miracle that no one was injured.

Graham said Sudan's Islamic regime is engaged in a campaign of ethnic cleansing. He's urging a no-fly zone in the area.

"They're targeting civilian areas. It's not just our Bible school, but they go after hospitals, they go after food distribution centers. Anywhere that civilians are gathered," Graham told CBN News.

"They're wanting to put panic into the hearts of the civilian population to make them flee," he continued. "It's ethnic cleansing, that's what the Serbs did, we saw in Bosnia and they're doing it here."

The White House released a statement calling the attacks "unjustified and unacceptable."

Sudan has carried out several attacks in South Kordofan. The violence has forced tens of thousands of people to flee the area.

According to Samaritan's Purse, at least four churches have been gutted in the past six months.
