Capuchin Priest Attacked in Turkey

"For the second time in the last two months a priest in the southern Turkish city of Mersin has been attacked.

Early Saturday evening a young man with a knife entered the parish of Capuchin Father Hanri Leylek, saying that he wanted to speak with a priest.

The young Turk insulted the priest and then threatened him with an 80-centimeter (31-inch) Kebab knife.

The priest was able to repel the aggressor, and that same evening the police arrested a suspect, a young Turk."
