Orthodox Churches Burned in Karachayevo-Cherkessia

On Monday two Orthodox churches were burned in the Muslim majority republic of Karachayevo-Cherkessia in southern Russia. Russian Transcaucasia has been destabilized for years by the war in Chechnya, but few churches outside Chechnya had been targeted by Islamists until now. Local authorities in Karachayevo-Cherkessia have already committed to rebuilding the churches.
