Eritrea Arrests

In Eritrea, security forces have arrested 11 members of the Asmara Full Gospel Church since Oct 14. Some are being held at Amara’s Police Station Number 5. Almost 3,000 Christians are detained across the country because they worship outside of the government approved Orthodox, Catholic and Lutheran churches. OD knows of at least ten Christians who have died after facing horrendous prison conditions. OpenDoors asks people to pray for these Christians. Christians are said to be held prisoners in metal shipping containers.
