(Christian Post) – Christian Solidarity Worldwide is calling for the international community to continue to put pressure on the Eritrean government to operate in accordance with international human rights standards, after last week’s arrest of Dr Futsum Gebrenegus, Dr Tekeleab, and the Reverend Gebremebhin—Orthodox priests involved in the renewal movement within the Orthodox Church. CSW reported that Eritrean security forces have raided dozens of homes and have arrested hundreds of Christians, including young children, simply for having a Bible or attending a Christian meeting. There are reported to be an estimated 400 Christians in prison, many having served more than two years.
