Hindu fundamentalists attacked a Christian missionary compound in India, severely injuring several people.
Sunday's attack was the second within a month at the Gospel Echoing Missionary Society facility in Rohtas district, Bihar state, reported Compass Direct, a news service that monitors persecution of Christians.
According to Compass, the mob hit a Christian doctor, Ambrose Christopher, around the head and hands, breaking one of his fingers.
The attackers took another man, Stephen Shankar, to nearby Bhedibigha village and brutally beat him before throwing him into a field, the news service said. Another man was left with a serious nosebleed after being punched in the face.
The most severe injuries, however, were sustained by Kirupakaran Shankar, who recently was married. The assailants injured his spinal cord, resulting in the loss of movement in one leg, Compass reported.
