Protestant pastor arrested in Iran
Catholic World News - May 23, 2013
Amid intensified persecution of Protestant churches in recent years, authorities in the Iranian capital of Tehran have arrested Rev. Robert Asserian, pastor of the Central Assemblies of God Church.
“The pressure has become unbearable; they constantly threaten the church leaders and their families with imprisonment, unexplained accidents, kidnapping and even with execution,” said a local source. “We cannot go on like this.”
