According to Compass
Direct News, the attack on a church leaders’ worship service of an Agape
Baptist Church (ABC) house church in Lai Tao village, Bot Xuyen
commune, My Duc district, left one woman, evangelist Nguyen Thi Lan,
with her pelvis broken in two places and with badly damaged internal
organs, according to doctors who recommended emergency surgery.

Yet
previously doctors at three area hospitals had told her and two other
seriously injured Christians that they were fine and dismissed them,
said Pastor Nguyen Cong Thanh, head of the ABC.

Compass
explained that when doctors in Vietnam learn that religious motives
play a role in violence, commonly they do not dare to treat or even
examine the victims of persecution.
