The Spanish missionary Inés Nives Sancho, 77 years old and belonging to the French Congregation of the Filles de Jesus de Massac, has been beheaded in the village of Nola, diocese of Berberati, in the Central African Republic.
The lifeless body of the Burgos missionary was found "horribly mutilated" on Monday in the room where she taught sewing in this village near the border with Cameroon, according to L'Osservatore Romano.
Monsignor Juan José Aguirre, head of the Diocese of Bangassou since 2000, explained that "undesirable people" entered the missionary's room, "they took her out of bed" and on Monday "they discovered her almost decapitated". "You do not know why, this Tuesday has already been buried," he told the Cope Network.
The missionary, who also has French nationality , had been working in the country for 26 years. At the moment, the authorship of this action is unknown.
The acting President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, has sent his condolences and affection to the family of the missionary and also to Fernando Hernández, the Salesian missionary who was murdered last week in Burkina Faso.
"A hug to your congregations and my recognition of their work always at the service of the most needy," the chief executive wrote in a note on his official Twitter account.
