A pastor in Mombasa, Kenya, was shot to death while praying at his church this weekend, according to Morning Star News.
Charles Matole had received threats after many converted to Christianity during revival services in a coastal area of the country.
Members his church, Vikwantani Redeemed Gospel Church, found him slumped in one of the church's plastic chairs Saturday night. He was still holding a bible in his hand.
"His skull was badly damaged," the church member said.
On Sunday, another pastor, Ebrahim Kidata of East African Pentecostal Church, was strangled and left in some bushes 30 miles north of Mombasa.
The murders come after angry Muslims rioted earlier this month over the killing of sheikh Ibrahim Omar and three others on a road near Mombasa.
Muslim youths from the Masjid Musa Mosque shouting "Allahu Akbar (Allah is Greater)" set fire to the Salvation Army Church building the following afternoon.
Omar reportedly regularly "issued incendiary sermons against non-Muslims," The Standard newspaper reported.
