An Egyptian evangelical Christian has died after spending 10 days in a Libyan jail in Benghazi, where he reportedly faced torture also. They used acid to burn off tattoos of the cross, according to family members.
Ezzat Hakim Attalah, a 45-year-old father of two, was arrested on 28 February along with five other evangelicals on charges of proselytizing.
How long, O Lord!
Lord, prepare me to stand boldly like this man for your Name.
Father, hold his family and others of your children close to your heart and comfort them.
