Vatican-affiliated news agency says a Roman Catholic priest has been killed in Nepal in a suspected terrorist attack.

AsiaNews says the Rev. John Prakash died after armed men broke into his residence in the eastern city of Sirsiya and set off an explosive device. Prakash was 62.

The agency says police suspect a terrorist group called the Terai Defense Army. It says the group has demanded money from the principal of the local Catholic school in the past.

AsiaNews says it is the first killing in the history of the Catholic Church in Nepal.
