Urgent call to prayer for Christians in Uzbekistan


3 April 2008

A group of believers in Samarkand was arrested at a meeting in one of their houses yesterday, 3 April. The police confiscated all books, note-books and a laptop which they found in the house. The Christians present were severely beaten and then all were released except one named Bobur. Bobur is being held at the police station while the police are apparently trying to find evidence to incriminate him on charges of inciting religious hatred. Until now, the police have not filed any formal charges against Bobur. A person can only be held for three days without formal charges being made.
