Assaults on Christians in prison in Iran.

Iran – Human rights activists confirmed that there has been a noticeable increase this month in the number of reported assaults on Christians in prison in Iran.

Not only are Iran’s secret police and Revolutionary Guard subjecting Christians to continuing arrests across Iran, but inside the actual prisons they have stepped up the frequency and intensity of beatings against Christian prisoners. The assaults, which are taking place primarily against converts who lead house churches, are intended to send a message to Christians throughout Iran, says Middle East Concern.

It says: ‘These beatings are not being kept hidden at all. It’s being done to make it quite visual when relatives come to the prison to visit. If they see what happened and they pass on the information to the church community; it’s a tactic of intimidation.’

Please continue to pray for all prisoners of faith who have suffered beatings recently.
