If you thought crucifixions were an ancient form of execution, think again. They are still being carried out by savages in the Islamic world.

Seven Christians Mutilated & Crucified in Sudan
"Seven Christians were reportedly 'crucified' after an attack on their church in Sudan.
'Marauding bands of guerrillas have "crucified" seven Christians during a series of raids on villages in Sudan, with one man tied to a tree and mutilated while six other victims were nailed to pieces of wood and killed.
Villagers who found their bodies near the town of Nzara said it was like a "grotesque crucifixion scene", the Catholic Herald reports.
Bishop Eduardo Hiiboro Kussala of Tombura-Yambio is appealing for international help to stop the cycle of violence and attacks by members of the Lord's Resistance Army, saying the government at home appeared powerless against it.
In one instance guerrillas stormed into Our Lady Queen of Peace church in Ezo during a novena prayer and desecrated the Host, the altar and the building before abducting 17 people mostly in their teens and 20s. One of the captives was later tied to a tree and killed while 13 others in the group are still missing, according to Aid to the Church in Need.'

Muslims Hunting, Killing Apostates in Somalia
"The State department is importing whole Muslim communities from Somalia. Many of those 'new Americans' have returned to Somalia to get Islamic training for jihad.
Let's hope Rifqa Bary does not cross paths with pious Muslims with this ..... uh, vigor.
Islamic extremists in Somalia hunting Christians hat tip Nelson
Somalia (MNN) ― 'Somalia's Muslim militants are hunting down converts to Christianity. According to Voice of the Martyrs Canada, Al-Shabaab members have murdered 14 believers since July 15.
Compass Direct News reports the September 15 shooting death of 69-year-old Omar Khalafe, an underground Christian who had Bibles in his possession.
On the day of his death, Khalafe was carrying 25 Somali Bibles he hoped to deliver to an underground fellowship in Somalia. At a checkpoint controlled by al Shabaab--a rebel group linked with al Qaeda which has taken over large parts of the war-torn country--bus passengers were ordered to disembark for inspection.
Voice of the Martyrs Canada and Compass Direct reports agree on the events following the discovery of the Bibles.
The assailants used photos they found to determine if they could match the faces to any passengers. When they noticed a resemblance to Khalafe, they asked if the Bibles were his. The radicals shot and killed him when he did not respond.
Militants then displayed his body in Merca along with the Bibles as a warning to others. Later that day, a militant reported Khalafe's death on a radio program.
Khalafe, who had been a Christian for 45 years, was active in sharing the Good News and baptizing converts from Islam.
Khalafe's family is in mourning, but due to the risk of exposure, his wife and seven children were unable to participate in his burial of the risk of being killed by militants, reports Compass Direct.'"
