The Iranian regime has arrested 11 Christians in the city of Isfahan. The eleven were transferred in an unknown location and no information is available about their situation. It seems that the arrested were former Muslims converted to Christianity. In Iran it is forbidden to leave the Shia religion. Who decided to convert, is considered an “apostate”, a crime which could be also punished with the death penalty.
