(Worthy News)-- Two Christian pastors from South Sudan who traveled north to Sudan and were arrested on charges of spying could face the death penalty when their trial begins next week, according to their attorneys.

Yat Michael Ruot and Peter Yein Reith, both Presbyterian pastors from the breakaway Christian nation of South Sudan, are being held by Sudan’s National Intelligence and Security Services on charges of undermining the constitution and espionage. Their supporters say their arrest and pending trial is just the latest effort by the militant Islamist government in Khartoum to stamp out Christianity.

The pair also was charged with "inciting organized groups" and "offending Islamic beliefs," which call for imprisonment. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.foxnews.com/world/2015/05/26/2-pastors-face-death-in-sudan-face-death-over-christian-faith/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
