Since Friday, tensions between Muslims and Christians have escalated with attacks on nine Christan churches.
The attacks were apparently triggered by a recent court decision that lifted a ban on the use of “Allah” for God in a Catholic newspaper.
The ruling had also permitted the use of “Allah” in the Bible. The government argues that “Allah” is only for Muslims and says it will appeal the ruling.
