TEHRAN, IRAN -- Militants with suspected ties to Iranian security forces have threatened to kill nearly a dozen evangelical Christians who fled Iran unless they "repent" and return to Islam, well-informed sources told Worthy News early Sunday, October 2.
At least 11 Iranian Christians received electronic mail messages from The Unknown Soldiers Of The Hidden Imam calling on them to either repent or face extra-judicial execution, said an Iranian church group and religious rights organization Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW).
The email threats came as in Iran Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani was awaiting a possible death sentence as early as Sunday, October 2, on charges of "apostasy", or abandoning Islam, although an Iranian official and government-linked media included "offenses" ranging from "rape and extortion" to "security crimes" to the long list of alleged wrongdoings.
The Unknown Soldiers are alleged to have links with Iranian security services, CSW told Worthy News in a statement.
Their email, which was sent to each individual last month, reportedly warns the recipients that although they may have managed to flee Iran, "they are not hidden from the acute eyes of the Unknown Soldiers".
