A pastor has been shot and killed and his Evangelical church in
French Guyana burned down, the day after he met with a delegation
from the National Council of Evangelicals in France.

Pastor A. Kalloe of the Gado Lobi church in the town of Saint-
Laurent du Maroni was killed on Tuesday night.

He was a member of the Guyana branch of the National Council of
Evangelicals in France (CNEF) and was visiting to discuss the
implementation of a law on separatism,

Seven other people at least, including two sons of Pastor Kalloe,
were injured in the shooting and two others were taken to a
hospital in critical condition.

Within a Facebook Post, the CNEF wrote: “An investigation is

“Pastor A. Kalloe had met our CNEF colleagues the day before
yesterday, who are in shock…

“I had never seen a church totally destroyed by fire, we are
completely puzzled,

“All our prayers, and condolences to this brother’s family and
loved ones!”
