Iran: 12 Christians on trial for apostasy
April 13, 2012

The group had been acquitted on similar charges a year ago.
“Their defense was that they were performing religious rituals that are protected by law,” said Jason DeMars of Present Truth Ministries, an American who is in frequent contact with Iranian evangelicals.
