Sudanese government steps up its drive to demolish churches in the country.
As a latest episode of the demolition drive, an evangelical church has recently been torn down by the government. Reports have that; the police bulldozed the Lutheran Evangelical church building in Omdurman. Local Christians are living in fear of possible anti-Christian drives from the authorities.
Due to its treatment of Christians and other human rights violations, Sudan has been designated a Country of Particular Concern by the U.S. State Department since 1999. The nation also ranked sixth on Open Doors’ 2015 World Watch List of 50 countries where Christians face the most persecution.
