High Concerns on the Situation of Patriarch Abune Antonios of Eritrea

Global: The Occidental World Magazine of the Occidental Studies Institution has published an article on Christian persecution in Eritrea written by George Alexander (Junior Adviser on Geo-strategy of Region).

If you ask people, “Where is Eritrea?” most would have no idea. As a tiny Eastern African country the size of Pennsylvania, with a population a little over 5 million people, it does not attract much attention. However, it should. The Christian population of Eritrea is being persecuted — their recognized leaders have been removed and the communities are living under strict government regulations that restrict their freedoms.

Eritrea is a country situated in the ‘Horn of Africa’, bordered by Sudan in the west, Ethiopia in the south, and Djibouti the southeast. The nation is dominated by two major religions, Christianity and Islam. Estimates indicate that 50% to 64% of the population is Christian.
