45 Christians arrested in Iran
February 21, 2011
Iranian authorities recently arrested 45 Christians around the nation and detained them overnight, according to Christian Solidarity Worldwide. “The wave of arrests and temporary detentions by the Iranian government appear to be part of the government’s wider tactic of repression and intimidation of the Christian community,” the organization said in a press release.
