SALT LAKE CITY — Two American missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints were attacked and beaten in Kosovo by Albanians; it happened in the city of Pristina, but news reports of the beating just surfaced late Wednesday afternoon. It happened this past November, and was kept quiet and out of the news for weeks.
While the United States and Germany are browbeating Serbia into the last leg of surrendering Kosovo to the narco-terrorist mafia demanding it, the latter are beating up female missionaries.
The incident is being tied to terrorism and the suspects responsible have been arrested.
Fox 13 News has learned two sister missionaries were beaten by Albanians, who are also tied to plotting a terrorist attack. The LDS Church said the two young women are out of harm’s way and doing OK.
Six Albanians suspected of plotting a terrorist attack were arrested ten days ago, and authorities believe two of them beat two sister missionaries in the capital city of Pristina on Nov. 3.
The LDS Church released a statement saying, “We can confirm two sister missionaries were beaten in Kosovo and have been moved out of the area. Gratefully they are making a full recovery.”
Some media http://religionandpolitics.org/2012/08/15/what-are-mormon-missionaries-doing-in-kosovo/ also wondered what Mormon missionaries were doing in Kosovo to begin with. According to an August 2012 article, the LDS Church established itself in Pristina in mid 2011, and Adriatic South Mission president Andrew Ford “says the country is ‘just another place, and we’re used to all sorts of places’ …There are plans to…introduce women (or ’sister missionaries’) into the country next year.”
That doesn’t seem to be going so well.
Kosovo Albanians are being tough for Christian in general many times before.
