An Iranian Christian seeking asylum in Sweden faces deportation after officials rejected his request.

Swedish officials could decide to send Reza Jebbari back to Iran as soon as this week.

Jebbari converted to Christianity while visiting Azerbaijan in 2010 and later moved to Sweden where he applied for asylum on grounds that he would face persecution if he returned to Iran.
