Report: hundreds of Christians arrested in Iran
Catholic World News - October 15, 2012
Up to 400 evangelical Protestants have been arrested in the last two weeks in Iran, according to a news site that chronicles the persecution of Christians.
“We have learned that at least 100, but perhaps as many as 400 people, have been detained over the last 10 days,” said Firouz Khandjani, a leader in the evangelical house-church movement.
“It has become clear that Protestant Christians are now viewed as enemy number one of the state,” he added, as he spoke of the nation’s intelligence service disrupting worship services in three cities.
