An Ethiopian police officer was arrested, dismissed and forced to move to another part of the country after he told colleagues about his Christian faith.
The 25-year-old man, who grew up in the eastern Somali region of Ethiopia as a member of the nearly 100 percent Muslim Somali tribe, became a Christian two years ago.
“Christians in the Muslim-majority eastern Somali region can experience hostility from family and community because of their faith, and also can be vulnerable when ethno-political tension erupts.”
