cross broken shatteredThe death of a Christian missionary in Cameroon has drawn more attention to the unrest that's happening in the central African country.  

A missionary from Indiana, Charles Wesco, was apparently caught in crossfire on October 30 between the Cameroon military and protesters.

Nathan Johnson with International Christian Concern says Wesco and his family had arrived in a nearby town less two weeks before his death. The missionary was driving and looking around the new area.

"And then some bullets from this local conflict hit the window and killed him," Johnson says.

Wesco's death follows the murder of a priest and a Christian student earlier this year.

The escalation of violence has caused the Christian persecution watchdog group to keep a close eye on events there.

"With the continued violence going on there," he predicts, "we could see more and more violence get worse and then it starts taking on some religious overtones."
