Algeria closes fourth church in four months

By World Watch Monitor

Another church has been closed down in northern Algeria, as pressure against Christians intensifies in the Maghreb country.

The village church in Azagher, near the town of Akbou, was forced to stop all activities on 2 March. The church had been running for over six years.

Two weeks earlier, on 18 February, the leaders of the church had received a notification that they must close their church within 15 days.
