Algerian Christians Banned from Worshipping
(Mission Network News)
In late May, the president of the Protestant Church Association in Algeria (EPA) received the following notice: "I, Mr. Ben Amar Salma, the High Commissioner of the police in Béjaia, have informed Mr. Mustapha Krim, the President of the EPA...to close down all worship places; the places which are used now and the places which are under construction.... The authorities will make sure that the order will be obeyed, otherwise severe consequences and punishments will be applied."
"They continued to meet and celebrate their religion despite the threats. If the authorities decide to close places of worship, Christians will gather in homes or cell group meetings in the open air, which is already being done in some communities. But we believe the situation will improve."
