Iran Steps Up Persecution of Christians

Ad Feedback

Authorities are cracking down on Christians in the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Elam Ministries, an organization that serves Christians in Iran, reports 285 believers in 35 cities have been arrested in the past six months.

Many of those Christians who were detained spent weeks and even months in prison, often serving long stretches in solitary confinement. They also endured interrogations and psychological abuse.

Elam Ministries U.S. Director David Yeghnazar recently spoke with CBN News Sr. International Correspondent Gary Lane spoke about the arrests.
