Over the weekend BosNewsLife, a website that covers news about Christian persecution, highlighted some of the latest concerns about Christians and Libya. The situation is not good.
Here are a few paragraphs from the BosNewsLife report:
Another Christian broadcaster, 'Heralding Christ Jesus’ Blessings' (HCJB) experienced similar problems but said it still reaching Christians and others in Libya through a satellite system from Europe. "The satellite provider we have from Europe beaming into North Africa has been able to stay on the air," said HCJB Global President Wayne Pederson. "Other satellite signals have been blocked, but the Lord has enabled us, for our radio signal, to continue 24/7 into the households of North Africa and the Middle East at this time."
Before the latest developments, Arab World Ministries already announced it has asked believers around the world to pray for Libya's small Christian community, comprising about 2.5 percent of the North African country's mainly Sunni Muslim population of roughly 6.6 million people.
