Sister Juliana Lim, 69, died yesterday after a violent attack on her and Sister Mary Rose Teng, 79, on May 14th in a town near Kuala Lumpur.

A man with covered face, savagely beat them and stole their money. Both were taken to hospital, where Lim died after being in a coma and Teng is still the hospital with serious injuries.

Police are still investigating the cause of the attack as they are unsure if it is the act of a desperate man or intentional aggression toward Catholics.
