10 persecuted Christians were invited last week to a State Department meeting in Washington to tell their story.
The meeting aimed to promote religious freedom. Along with the 10 Christians, other people who have suffered because of their religious beliefs also attended.
In all, 23 people from 15 countries attended to share their testimony. These included people from China, Cuba, Malaysia, Iraq, Nigeria, North Korea, Turkey and India. In addition to the persecuted Christians, Muslims and Jews also recounted about the discrimination they have experienced for their religious beliefs.
