(Saudi Arabia)–Next, Compass Direct News reports that more than a dozen foreign Christians remain jailed in Saudi Arabia. Saudi officials have refused to give any reason to for their detention. The group was rounded up in a series of arrests that began on July 19. Meanwhile, seven more believers were reportedly detained in early November as they left a house church meeting. Although officials claim that Christians are permitted to meet privately for worship, zealous religious police frequently arrest those who do.
