World Watch Monitor | Nov. 21, 2018

Two Iranian Christian converts have been taken by Iran’s security agents from the houses they were staying in Karaj and Mashhad on Friday, 16 November, reports Middle East Concern(MEC).

Behnam Ersali and Davood Rasooli had agreed to meet in Mashhad on Friday when they were both arrested. It is believed Iranian intelligence knew of their arrangement after intercepting their calls, according to MEC.

Ersali was already in Mashhad, 946km from Karaj in northeastern Iran, when six security agents raided his friend’s house where he was staying and arrested them both. While they released his friend after a few hours, Ersali remains in custody in an unknown location, said MEC.
