Third Christian this Year Dies in Military Prison




Imprisoned for his faith, 43-year-old dies in solitary confinement.


LOS ANGELES, July 27 (CDN) — Another Christian imprisoned for his faith in Eritrea has died from authorities denying him medical treatment, according to a Christian support organization.


Sources told Netherlands-based Open Doors that Yemane Kahasay Andom, 43, died Thursday (July 23) at Mitire Military Confinement Center. A member of the Kale-Hiwot church in Mendefera, Andom was said to be secretly buried in the camp.


Weakened by continuous torture, Andom was suffering from a severe case of malaria, Open Doors reported in a statement today.
