via Children, Entire Evangelical Families Being Arrested in Eritrea Simply for Praying

Entire evangelical Christian families, including children, are reportedly being arrested in new persecution tactics being used by Eritrean officials, human rights activists have said.

“Since May of this year, nearly 200 Christians have been arrested. The interesting thing about this — they have shifted tactics … Instead of just raiding church services or Bible studies, now the government is going to the homes of Christians, and they’re arresting the whole family,” Todd Nettleton of Voice of the Martyrs USA told Mission Network News.
