Next, Open Doors is reporting the execution of an evangelical leader in Peru. The man was executed two weeks ago, after Marxist guerrillas declared him guilty of taking part in police and military activities. He was shot to death following a “people’s trial” conducted by nearly two dozen terrorists, who identified themselves as members of the Shining Path rebel group. Open Doors says Christians in Peru’s rural communities often are targets of violence because of their refusal to choose sides in the area’s conflicts.
