TARGETS FOR TERROR Churches take new security measures in face of threats

FOX News

As Father Josiah Trenham prepared to read the Gospel, several parishioners discreetly scooped up their babies, retreated up the aisles of St. Andrew Orthodox Church and out into the spring air, so as not to allow the crying of little ones to disturb the divine liturgy. The time-honored tradition was shattered when a car passed by the Riverside, Calif., church, slowing down as the front passenger leaned out of his window and bellowed menacingly through a bullhorn, according to witnesses. "Allahu Akbar!" the unidentified man repeated several times as the unnerved parents drew their infants close and exchanged worried glances. Members of the church were gathered under the main archway when the car passed slowly by, its occupant allegedly yelling "Allahu Akbar!" over a bullhorn. Witnesses were able to give Riverside police a description of the green Honda Civic, but not of the three occupants.
