      Asian Christians persecuted, says Orthodox leader

      Hong Kong (ENI). The outgoing leader of Orthodox Christians in Hong Kong and
      South East Asia has said Christians in the region have suffered "a series of
      persecutions". He also suggested that more religions should be allowed to
      practise in China. "Christians in many Asian countries are facing serious
      persecution," said Metropolitan Nikitas (Lulias). Citing two countries as
      examples, the metropolitan said, "The situations [of Christians] in
      Indonesia and India are complicated." He added, "Christians were beaten,
      churches were burnt. What we do is to pray." [317 words, ENI-07-0505]
