(Uzbekistan)–Keston News Service has learnt that Nukus police illegally seized religious literature including a Bible, and claimed that Uzbek citizens were not allowed to have Bibles. The police chief has denied the charges, however, other Uzbek authorities have adopted a harsh attitude towards Christians. It is all but impossible for communities to register, and many Protestant leaders have been subjected to heavy fines. Pray for the Christians struggling to grow in their faith in Uzbekistan.
