Iran Arrests Boise Pastor 2nd Time

A pastor from Boise is being held in prison in Iran for the second time in less than five years. His lawyer said it's because of his Christian beliefs. The American Center for Law and Justice is representing Saeed Abedini's family here in the United States. ACLJ is also launching a campaign to get the United Nations, US State Department, and Congress to demand Abedini's release. KTVB took video of Abedini and his family in 2009, when he got back from another incident in the Middle East. In 2009, he was held in Tehran for about two months and threatened with his life for helping Christians meet in underground churches/Stephanie Zepelin, KTVB. More here.
