Unknown assailants on Sunday stoned a two-story building housing a Protestant church in the Black Sea port city of Samsun, the pastor of the church said. "The assailants broke at least 10 windows in an overnight attack," Mehmet Orhan Picaklar, the pastor of the Agape Church, told The Associated Press by telephone. "This is the seventh or eight such attack over the past three years. Separately, I am constantly receiving death threats by e-mail." Picaklar said the church had moved into the building just two weeks ago. Uniformed police officers were deployed outside the church after the attack, the private Dogan news agency reported. The attack was the latest against Christians in this predominantly Muslim country.
