The Top 10 Countries Where Christian Persecution is Most Severe
The country of Eritrea, located in eastern Africa on the Red Sea, is a small country and not often talked about, but Christians living here face severe persecution. Religious freedom is a foreign concept and many Eritrean Christians have fled the country.
"The government’s treatment of Christian prisoners, thousands of whom have been arrested and imprisoned, has received a great deal of international attention. Many have been locked in shipping containers and died as a result," says a report from Open Doors which is working to provide aid and discipleship to Eritrean Christians.
