Three Iranian Christians have been imprisoned this week by the authorities. They are part of the municipality of the Sunday pastor Yusef Nadarkhani.

The English organization Christian Solidarity Worldwide reported Thursday that Saheb Fadaie and Mohammedreza Omidi were arrested Tuesday. Yasser Mossayebzadeh was arrested a day later. The three were transferred to a prison in Tehran.

Like Nadarkhani, the men were released on bail in May, after withdrawing the appeal in the lawsuit against them. The foursome was imprisoned on charges of jeopardizing national security and promoting Zionist Christianity.
