CWN Editor's Note: The US Commission on International Religious Freedom has recommended adding five countries to the list of “countries of special concern” because of their violations of religious freedom.

The nations already listed as “countries of particular concern” are Burma, China, Eritrea, Iran, Nicaragua, North Korea, Pakistan, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Tajikistan, and Turkmenistan.
