Christian facing Execution for his Faith (An Update)

Yousef Nadarkhani

Human rights and faith groups are urgently calling for more action on behalf of Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani, who faces execution in Iran. The Christian minister was on trial in Rasht last week, and refused to deny his faith during the court hearing. He has now re-appeared in court three times, and each time has refused to renounce Christianity when asked to do so by the court. If he continues to refuse, he faces execution.
