(Worthy News) - Four Christians found guilty of acting against Iran's national security have lost an appeal against their prison sentence.

In May 2016, security agents raided the homes of Yousef Nadarkhani, Mohammadreza Omidi, Yasser Mossayebzadeh and Saheb Fadaie in Rasht, a city some 200 miles northwest of Iran's capital city Tehran.

According to Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW), the men were charged with being a threat to Iran's national security and accused of promoting "Zionist Christianity". [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]
