American pastor Saeed Abedini is criticizing women's rights activists who are refusing to speak up for his friend Maryam (Nasim) Naghash Zargaran, a Christian woman who's being held in an Iranian prison for her faith.
"So many people (who fought for me) left us in this battle with Nasim alone and never mention her name," Abedini wrote on Facebook Thursday.
He added that some of those people often talk about women's rights and issues of abuse, but left a Christian woman "in prison and sicknesses behind." more >>

In an interview with a Korean media, American Christian missionary Kenneth Bae, who was detained in North Korea for two years, shares why he was arrested and how he was kept in prisons and labor camps in that country which is known to be the worst persecutor of Christians in the world.
"I was running a tour company (to hide the fact that I was a missionary)," Bae told Unification Media Group, which seeks to bridge the chasm between the North and South Koreas. "Through this company, I would bring people in from other countries and introduce them to locations that exemplified North Korea's natural beauty and local culture. But on my 18th trip, I mistakenly took an external hard drive with me that contained videos exposing the reality in the North. That hard drive was picked up in a security check, and I was detained as a result."
Bae was arrested in the city of Rajin on Nov. 3, 2012, and subsequently sentenced to 15 years of hard labor for allegedly plotting to overthrow the government. Director of U.S. National Intelligence James Clapper visited North Korea in November 2014 on a secret mission for the release of Bae and U.S. citizen Matthew Miller. more >>
