REDACCIoN CENTRAL (ACI Prensa) - Los vandalos fueron un pueblo germano de Europa central. Su lengua pertenece a la rama germanica oriental que habitaban en las actuales Alemania y Polonia.

En el ano 484, el rey Humerico ordeno que todas las iglesias cristianas del africa fueran clausuradas y confiscados los bienes del clero para entregarlos al pueblo. Por mandato real, congregaron a los obispos en el palacio, despues los condujeron lejos de la ciudad y les ordenaron a que marcharan solos hacia el destierro.

Ante tal injusticia, Donaciano y otros cuatro obispos de la provincia de Bisaseno, reunieron a numerosos cristianos para protestar frente a las puertas de la ciudad; el rey Humerico furioso por la revuelta, ordeno a sus soldados a matar y "aplastar" a quienes protestaban.

Donaciano y los cuatro obispos fueron brutalmente golpeados y se les condujo al desierto, donde quedaron abandonados para morir de hambre y sed.

San Cleto, Obispo de la Leptis Menor, considerado "un hombre celoso y muy sabio," y que se habĂ­a ganado la enemistad de Humerico por su energica oposicion al arrianismo, tambien fue encerrado en un calabozo estrecho, oscuro y pestilente, del cual lo sacaron al cabo de dos meses para quemarlo vivo.
