Vietnam, Niger State/Nigeria, Indonesia

Christians in Vietnam, which has been one of the worst countries when it comes to generalized and openly state-baced persecution, have grown in boldness when it comes to pleading for the Hmong to U.S. and European Union officials, and to the media worldwide. (Link)

Christians in Niger State, Nigeria, were told that when sharia (Islamic law) was imposed there, it wouldn't impact them. This has turned out to be a lie. (Link)

In Indonesia, Islamic extremists were caught with 800 pounds of explosives and 900 detonators in Poso, where the young Christian women were beheaded and two other students were shot. Also, the heads of the young women were discovered wrapped in plastic, with a note saying: "We will murder 100 more Christian teenagers and present you their heads as presents." (Link)
