MARTYRED FOR THEIR FAITH: THREE INDONESIAN GIRLS BEHEADED AS THEY WALKED TO A CHRISTIAN SCHOOL 

THESE GIRLS ARE THE TRUE MARTYRS

There have been many sickening stories concerning radical terrorists in the last few years but this one turned my stomach. Three innocent girls were beheaded because they were merely walking to school - a Christian school.

Three Indonesian girls have been beheaded and another badly injured as they walked to a Christian school.

They were walking through a cocoa plantation near the city of Poso in central Sulawesi province when they were attacked.

This is an area that has a long history of religious violence between Muslims and Christians.

A government-brokered truce has only partially succeeded in reducing the number of incidents in recent years.

Police say the heads were found some distance from the bodies.

It is unclear what was behind the attack, but the girls attended a private Christian school and one of the heads was left outside a church leading to speculation that it might have had a religious motive.
