Khartoum - An Islamic fundamentalist group in Sudan made an attempt to bring down a church in the capital Khartoum and eventually managed to set it on fire.
The group's supporters led by hard-line figure Muhammad Abdel-Kareem gathered at 60th Street, a main road of Khartoum, and marched towards the Anglican Church located in Sawafi area.
They were met by Sudanese security forces which surrounded the church and prevented the group from entering it by imposing a cordon.
However, some individuals from the group managed to sneak in through the barrier and set the church on fire.
The church contains a home for the elderly, clinic, educational classrooms and houses students as well as monks.
