Eritrean Gospel Singer Helen Berhane Tortured for Her Beliefs

ROME (RNS) Berhane spoke recently at a Rome conference on Christian persecution in the hopes others might learn of the grievous human rights violations in her native land.

CHR Comment: Eritrea only recognizes four religious denominations. The article implies that that the Eritrean government was responsible for the torture (“custody” and “arrest”) though the article does not make this absolutely clear. Berhane is a Pentecostal.
