News that matters

The headline item on much of the BBC news coverage today has been the impending parting of ways between British Petroleum and its (as I write still) present chief executive.

But might there be a couple of news items that are more important?

The situation of Christians in Pakistan - Aid to the Church in Need's most recent news report is here - is something of worldwide significance. Pakistan offers a measure of what might happen elsewhere in terms of the relationship between Christian and Muslim communities.

And, if this situation goes wrong, the outcomes could be nuclear. Whilst these events are taking place at the other side of the world to us in Europe, what is at stake should not be underestimated.
