New Muslim attack kills Evangelical minister in Indonesia

.- Muslim gunmen attacked a Christian church in Indonesia on Sunday, killing the minister, a woman, and wounding four worshippers.

The unidentified attackers burst into the "Effeta" Evangelical  church at Palu, the capital of Central Sulawesi province, during an evening service.  Police say as many as five Muslim fundamentalists stormed  into the small church and opened fire.

Since 1999, more than 1,000 people -mostly Christians- have been killed in violent clashes between Muslims and Christians on Sulawesi island.

Indonesia is the world's most populous Muslim nation, but Christians make up about half of Sulawesi's more than 12 million people.

Similar attacks have occurred this year in the same area despite a cease-fire that the government negotiated in 2001 in an attempt to curb Muslim attacks against Christians.
