Report: Conversions reported on the rise in Yemen

October 11, 2007

From Catholic World News:

Yemen, Oct. 11, 2007 (CWNews.com) – The Palestinian newspaper al-Quds al-Arabi is reporting 2,000 conversions from Islam to Christianity in Yemen.

Many of the converts are reportedly living abroad in fear for their lives. Yemen adheres to Shari’a law, which forbids conversions from Islam on pain of death.

The World Muslim League has appealed to Yemen’s government to stem the tide of conversions, placing the blame on schools administered by foreigners.
