In today's edition of Perspectives Daily, we have a two-part special on a conversation with Archbishop Ignatius Ayau Kaigama of Jos, Nigera, about the state of the Catholic community in his country. In this first of a two-part interview, the archbishop reflects on the recent violence between  Muslim Fulani herdsmen and Christian farmers, and sheds light on the cause of the growing tension. Is a holy war brewing in that country or is it just a matter of economics?
In addition to that, here are other Catholic news items from around the world that are making headlines today:
That's it for today. Be sure to join us again on Monday for the second portion of this interview when Archbishop Kaigama will discuss the aftermath of the Pope's historic ultimatum given to the clergy in the diocese of Ahiara last year.
