Two Azeri Speaking Iranian Christians Arrested in Tabriz

We have received news that in Tabriz, Iran two Azeri speaking Christians, “Vahid Rofegar ” and ” Reza Kahnamoei”,  were identified and then subsequently chased on motorcycles by the security services. They attempted to flee off road, but crashed and were then apprehended by the authorities. They were arrested and beaten then taken to prison.

Mohabat News reports that, “It is likely that these arrests are related to the increasing pressure on the Azeri-speaking Christians of Iran. Recently some pro-government websites admitted to this fact and complained about the “wide spread of the Christianity, especially in the city of Tabriz “.

Please pray for these men and that God would continue to work to bring people to himself in Tabriz.
