Two men abducted a Sri Lankan pastor on May 24 and threatened to kill him if he didn’t beg forgiveness for his Christian activities. They eventually took the pastor to a remote location, where they beat him and threatened to destroy his church. The pastor filed a police report, but the men have not been caught.
