Eritrean authorities arrest people at home prayer meetings

In the capital city Asmara, and in regional towns Keren and Massawa, Eritrean authorities arrested and detained at least 29 people, most of them Christians. They had been in home prayer groups.

ReleaseEritrea, a watch group based in the United Kingdom, writes articles detailing the persecution of Christians in Eritrea, and lobbies the Eritrean government, asking it to uphold their constitutional provisions to protect the freedom of religion.
