Two Syrian Christian families who sought asylum in Sweden have been persecuted by Syrian Muslims sharing the same communal asylum house and forced to move out. The Muslims banned the Christians from using the communal areas of the house, which accommodated around 80 asylum-seekers, and made them hide their crosses. The Christians had fled from Syria because of the extreme danger posed to Christians by the Islamic State group. Sweden accepts many refugees from the Middle East. Pray that the Swedish authorities will have wisdom in the arrangements they make and will not unwittingly cause further distress or danger to Christians who have made their way thee seeking peace and freedom.
