Three Eritrean Christian Refugees describe what is happening to the followers of Jesus in their country. Over 2000 Christians are currently in prisons in the East African nation. In May 2002, the government announced that all churches other than Orthodox, Roman Catholic and Lutheran (Orthodox Church of Eritrea, Sunni Islam, the Roman Catholic Church, and the Lutheran-affiliated Evangelical Church of Eritrea are approved according to CIA) were to be closed immediately. Since then, hundreds of evangelical Christians have been arrested for practicing what officials are calling ''a new religion''. (Release International Report) [More] [Less]
