Frans van der Lugt, a Jesuit priest who refused to leave the embattled city of Homs, Syria, in solidarity with the few Christians still living there, was killed by assassins Monday in his garden.
Known among the people as Abouna Francis, the native Dutchman had worked in Syria for more than 40 years. He was 75.
