A Christian woman in Pakistan was brutally attacked and gang-raped by two young Muslim men while her husband was away serving in the army.
The attackers also threatened the woman's young daughter, the British Pakistani Christian Association said on Monday, forcing her to comply to their demands.
"The men treated me like an animal, telling me I was a worthless Christian, but I know my God is a great God. When I screamed they told me that they knew my husband was away and that I was unprotected. They threatened to kill my child if I did not comply with their perverse demands," said the victim, 30-year-old Asia Mushtaq from the Toba Tak Singh district. more >>

A Christian rock band of Karen people from Burma and Thailand, which raised more than $53,000 to help a Christian school and orphans, are now fighting the civil forfeiture of their money by the Muskogee, Oklahoma Sheriff's Department, which has alleged the money is proceeds from drug trafficking.
The Institute for Justice explained in a release Monday that on Feb. 27 at 6:30 p.m., Eh Wah, 40 – the volunteer American tour manager for the Klo & Kweh Music Team – was pulled over in Muskogee for having a broken brake light. The routine stop, however, quickly turned into a nightmare for Wah.
In an affidavit about the stop, a Muskogee deputy charged that a drug sniffer dog got a positive alert on Wah's vehicle. During a search of the vehicle, police say they found $53,234 and decided to hold on to it because they weren't satisfied with Wah's explanation of how he got the money. English is not Wah's first language. He is a naturalized U.S. citizen from the Karen community in Burma. more >>
