Eritrea releases Christian prisoners but threatens further prosecution
Catholic World News - February 22, 2010
The government of Eritrea has released a group of 14 Christians who had been imprisoned for 2 years, but warned them that they could face execution if they engaged in any public religious activities in the future. The human-rights group Open Doors USA reports that there are 2,000 Christians facing charges for religious activities in Eritrea.
