LAOS – Laos Cracks Down on Christianity as ‘Religion of the Europeans and Americans’

Breitbart | Jan. 5, 2019

Laos has been tightening restrictions on Christian practice as an unwelcome Western influence, mirroring the situation of other Asian communist nations.

During the Christmas holidays, incidents of arrests, harassment, and censure of expressions of the Christian feast were reported around the country.

Nine police officers raided a Nakanong Village Christmas service on December 29 and arrested three church leaders on charges of illegally gathering for worship in the country’s southern Savannakhet province without government permission.
