Young Adventist killed by bomb blast in Solomon Islands, others injured

Kukum youth leader Raziv Hilly (aged 29) died from injuries after being rushed to the National Referral Hospital. Two others remain in hospital in critical condition, and one sustained minor injuries.

Reports stated that four young people were cooking food on a wood fire for a fundraiser when the incident occurred, unaware that that the heat from the fire would trigger the bomb.

According to Solomon Star, Mr Hilly was from Vella La Vella and Ranoggah in the Western Province and was a qualified aviation engineer and property manager.

Seventh Day Adventists told to leave Solomons island

Solomon Islands Mission coordinator Pastor Irving Vagha says there are just three Seventh Day Adventists on the far eastern island of Anuta

Recently they built a small church against the wishes of the island's chief, who then demanded they pull it down and has ordered them to leave the predominantly Anglican island.

Pastor Vagha says the president of the church is trying to meet with his Anglican counterpart to find some resolution.
