(Worthy News) - Authorities in the north African nation of Algeria are closing churches in an attempt to curtail the activities of minority Christians in this Muslim-majority nation.

In the past several months, three congregations associated with the Protestant Church of Algeria were shut down after authorities allege the structures didn't meet certain building safety codes.

Mohamed Aissa, Algeria's ministry of religious affairs, claims the churches were closed because they "did not meet the standards required of a place of worship." [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]
