(Compass) – Five East Africans arrested for leading a private Christian worship service in Riyadh were released after a month in jail. Three weeks after their May 30 release, the three Ethiopians and two Eritreans had received no indication that they will lose their jobs or be subject to deportation. The men were interrogated extensively while blindfolded the first seven days. Within the past two months, at least three meetings of expatriate Christians gathering privately for worship in Riyadh have been broken up and their leaders arrested for several days or weeks. Saudi Arabia prohibits the public practice of any religion other than Islam.
