Story number 2 for 5 Sep 2001

(Afghanistan)–Meanwhile, eight foreign aid workers are now on trail in Afghanistan for allegedly preaching Christianity in that Islamic nation. The Associated Press reports the chief justice met with 14 Islamic clerics at the start of the trial Tuesday, which was closed to the public and the press. The trial is expected to last a few days. This comes on the heels of the Taliban government closing down two more Christian relief organizations late last week. The antagonism is forcing some relief agencies to leave the country.
