Priest shot in Moscow

21 November 2009

I received the following e-mail from Fr Maxim Obukhov of Moscow:

Fr Daniel Sysoev shot in Moscow

Fr Daniel Sysoev was of Tartar origin (ethnic Tartar, turk people in the
east of Russia, mostly muslems) had Muslem background. He knew Islam and
Tartar culture and was active missionary, wrote some Christian polemic books
about Islam. His books were not agressive against Islam and muslems, but it
was regular missionary work. They described the difference of Islam and
Christianity. Fr Daniel baptized a number of Muslems. As he wrote in his
blog, that he recieved 14 threats to kill him from islamic radicals.

Fr Daniel was shot yesterday by a man in mask, in the Church of st Thomas,
in the south of Moscow and died in hospital this night.

Fr Maxim Obukhov, Moscow
