(Afghanistan)–Reuters is reporting that Afghanistan’s Taliban rulers will allow the International Committee of the Red Cross to meet eight foreign aid workers accused of spreading Christianity. The foreigners, two Australians, four Germans and two Americans, together with 16 Afghan nationals have been held since early August. However, the minister in charge of the religious police that carried out the arrests, says he was unaware of any decision to allow a visit to the Western prisoners. Please continue to pray for the safety of the Christians in Afghanistan.
