(Worthy News) - Rwandan police have arrested six Christian pastors on grounds that they are planning to defy a recent order that closed more than 700 churches that allegedly don't meet safety and cleanliness standards.
AFP reports that authorities in the African country announced Tuesday that they had arrested six "masterminds" plotting to defy the government's shutdown of 714 churches and one mosque that were deemed unsafe, unclean and noisey in the capital city of Kigali.
The government accuses the religious leaders, all Pentecostals, of holding meetings where they discussed resistance of the order, which was issued last week. [ Source: Christian Post (Read More...) ]
