Laos: Special Committee Formed to “Eliminate Christianity”

Radio Free Asia reports that a group of Lao exiles has accused officials in the village of Nakoon, Laos, of forming a special committee to eliminate Christianity from the village and of forcing local Christians to renounce their faith or leave the village, evicting 46 people in total. The Christian community had been practicing underground until a September 2006 provincial order which recognized the religion encouraged them to hold meetings openly. The government denies the accusations. Read more from the Lao Movement for Human Rights.
