IRANIAN AUTHORITIES ARREST 80+ EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS IN RAID

Iranian police invaded the annual general conference of Iran’s Assemblies of God Church Thursday, Sept. 9, arresting at least 80 church leaders who were gathered at the church’s denominational center in Karaj, 20 miles west of Tehran.
Each individual was reportedly questioned separately by security officials who had a specific list of questions. By evening, the authorities had released all the arrested Christians except for the 10 pastors among them. The location of these 10 men is unknown, and their families have not been allowed any contact with them.
All of the evangelicals who were released were ordered not to attend church services. “This is the biggest crisis for evangelical believers in the country since three Protestant pastors were murdered 10 years ago,” said another source.
