  • 1 Reply

Two Christian men who were visiting a Christian family in a Laotian village were arrested on charges of spreading the Christian faith, according a Laotian religious-freedom advocacy organization.

The example of one of the detained men, Bountheung Phetsomphone, led 300 people in a nearby village to become Christian in 2012, according to the report.

Laos is a Communist nation of 6.8 million in Southeast Asia; 67% of Laotians are Buddhist, 1% are Protestant, and less than 1% are Catholic.
