Afghan Christian Martyr, Abdul Rahman, Freed

The intolerant Afghan clerics who wanted to execute Abdul Rahman for apostasy, that is he converted from Islam to Christianity, a crime in Islamic law requiring the death sentence, have released him on the grounds of insufficient evidence.

Sounds like international pressure and Hamid Kharzai's talk with Condeleeza Rice did the trick.

Here is hope that this will be a widening trend for those that follow Christianity and indeed all other faiths in the middle east.
