 Saudi religious police arrest 8 Christians


Saudi Arabia's religious police arrested eight Christians, including one who was beaten in front of his 5-year-old son, according to a Washington, D.C.-based human rights group.

International Christian Concern says Chittirical John Thomas, an Indian national, was pulled from work in Riyadh by Saudi Muttawa authorities, dragged to his home and beaten.

In addition, seven other Indian nationals were arrested in similar fashion while they slept Saturday night. ICC identified them as Valiakalail Samuel Daniel, Koil Pillai Vijaykumar, Mutham Plackal Mathai Thomas, Pathivadathil James George, George Matthew, Biju Thomas and Saji Varghese.

The Muttawa confiscated Thomas' Bible and other religious items and took him to the Shemaissy Detention Center in the capital. His wife has not heard from him since.
