(Afghanistan)–Next, Reuters reports a setback in the trial of the foreign aid workers. The Taliban Supreme Court judges in Afghanistan have now postponed the group’s trial indefinitely, citing anger over the U.S. airstrikes. Officials feared the situation would prevent them from making a fair ruling. The defendants are facing charges of spreading Christianity in the hard-line Muslim country. There is no word on the fate of the 16 Afghan nationals who were arrested at the same time. Please pray for their safety and that their faith would remain strong.
