Libya Arrests 2 Americans, 2 Libyans For Alleged Attempted Conversion


Libyan security forces have reportedly arrested two American citizens for allegedly trying to convert Muslims there to Christianity.

Neither have been named by the authorities.

However, both are reported to have worked at the same private language school in the capital Tripoli.

One of the men is accused of allegedly working as a missionary for the Assemblies of God organisation based in the United States (US) state of Arkansas.

Two Libyans were also arrested on similar charges, according to the BBC.

Islam is the state religion of Libya.

While Christians are reportedly free to worship there, attempting to convert Muslims to other faiths is banned.
