In The Name Of God

Gunmen killed an Italian nun and her bodyguard at the entrance of a hospital where she worked in Somalia, in an attack some feared could be linked to Muslim outrage over the pope's recent remarks about Islam.

The 60 year old nun, was shot in the back four times by two gunmen armed with pistols.

The shooting took place at S.O.S. Hospital for women and children in northern Mogadishu where the nun, who spoke fluent Somali, worked since 2002.

The two men who killed her thought they were defending their religion and their prophet. They thought they would go to heaven for shooting a 60 year old helpless nun in the back.
