Story number 3 for 19 Jan 2000

By January 19, 2000

Open Doors is reporting the 15 Filipino Christians who were recently arrested
in Saudi Arabia are still being detained by local authorities. Five of those arrested
during the home worship service were children and some feel that interrogators are
using them as hostages, to force their parents to reveal details about their meetings. The
15 are not allowed visitors until the investigation has been completed. Although the
raided church service was being held in private, the size and mixed crowd may have
contributed to the arrests.
