Iran: Christian Beaten, Tortured by Police for Suspected Conversion

Iran Focus (Warning: link contains violent images) reports that an Iranian man identified as only A.Sh. was tortured by Iranian security agents after they found a Bible and a DVD about Jesus Christ in his car. While being held at a detention center, the man was beaten and accused of having converted from Islam to Christianity, which is punishable as a crime in Iran. A.Sh. was released after his family posted bail. The story, along with photos, was originally reported by the Farsi Christian News Network.
