Torture, Prison: Iran Continues Christian Crackdown

Ad Feedback

The persecution of Christians continues across Iran. At least 13 Christians have been arrested since July, but the charges against them remain unknown.

Prior to their arrest, some are put under pressure to renounce their faith and return to Islam.

Rev. Sam Yeghnazar, executive director of ELAM, said, "Now that President Rouhani has expressed his determination to reopen the lines of dialogue with the West, Iran should improve treatment of its religious minorities."

Along with torture, Christians are facing sentences that range from years in prison to exile for their Christian activities.
