Sweden Denies Asylum to Christians Facing Persecution

STOCKHOLM -- Christians in Iran face arrest, torture, even death. But that doesn't seem to matter to Swedish immigration officials.

Sweden wants to send Iranian Christian asylum seekers, who left Islam, back to Iran where they could be killed.

Iran is one of the most dangerous places in the world for Christians. As apostates from Islam, they face grave danger in this country.

But their requests for asylum status that could save their lives have been denied.

Reza Jabbari has been in hiding after his asylum request was rejected. He knows what could await him in Iran.

"Islam teaches that every man who leaves Islam must be killed because that man is an apostate," he said.

His pastor, Cai Berger, still can't believe Reza's asylum request was denied.
