15 nations named ‘egregious’ religious-freedom violators

May 02, 2013: In its newly released annual report, the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), an independent federal agency, is urging the State Department to designate or redesignate 15 nations as “countries of particular concern” (CPCs) because of their “systematic, ongoing, and egregious violations of religious freedom.”

Eight of the nations – Burma, China, Eritrea, Iran, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, and Uzbekistan – are currently designated as CPCs. The seven other nations are Egypt, Iraq, Nigeria, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Vietnam. Source: CWN
