india Updated: Aug 29, 2008 12:45 IST

Expressing deep anguish over the attack on Christians and their institutions in parts of Orissa, Catholic schools and colleges across Kerala were on Friday shut as part of the countrywide protest over the issue.

All Christian denominations pledged solidarity with Catholic church by wearing black badges, passing resolutions condemning the attack on the community and holding prayer meetings in their institutions, sources said.

Schools and colleges run by three Catholic groups - Syro Malabar, Syro Malankara and Latin hierarchy - remained closed for the day.
