India    KILLING OF CATHOLIC PRIEST IN ORISSA STATE DRAWS OUTRAGE
Using bows and arrows, assailants killed a Catholic priest in a part of Orissa state where a Hindu fanatic is blamed for burning to death an Australian missioner and his two sons eight months ago.
    Father Arul Doss, 35, was attacked by 15-20 men just after dawn Sept. 2 in Jambani village, in the eastern Indian state's Mayurbhanj district, where he went to hold Mass for some 15 Ho tribal families during a harvest festival, Balasore diocese sources reported.
    Seen as part of a pattern of killings by Hindu fanatics, the killing has evoked outrage from Church leaders, and Indian Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee has ordered the arrest of the culprits irrespective of their affiliation.
