[Christianity Today UK] 26 Oct 2008--The Iranian authorities last week released on bail the son of a Christian pastor who was hanged for converting to Christianity. Ramtin Soodmand, a leader in the Evangelical Church of Iran in Mashhad, is charged with anti-government activities.
He was released on bail on Wednesday and has since been reunited with his wife and two children.
Release International, which serves persecuted Christians worldwide, has launched an appeal to support the Christians of Iran. It welcomes Ramtin’s release, and is calling for more prayer and support for persecuted Christians in Iran.
