Church leaders respond to martyrdom of Father Jacques Hamel
Church leaders have been responding to yesterday’s murder of French Roman Catholic priest Father Jacques Hamel. Father Hamel was killed by supporters of Daesh as he and a small congregation celebrated Mass at the Church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray in Normandy. The assailants were subsequently shot and killed by French security forces.

UK government funds security at places of worship
The U.K. government have announced a £2.4 million ($3.1 million) fund to help secure places of worship in England and Wales.

Churches, mosques and temples have been invited to bid for grants if they can show that they are at risk of attack from religious hate crimes. Synagogues are excluded from the program because the government has provided a separate grant to the Community Security Trust, a charity that provides protection services to Britain’s Jewish communities.
