It seems that this does not refer to the Oriental Orthodox Church, only to some obscure Protestant groups... does anyone have more information?

Actually, Eritrea does not recognize the radical forms of organized religions such as: Low-church Protestants, Baha'i followers, and Sufis. But Eritrea does recognize the Eritrean Orthodox Church, Sunni Islam, Catholicism, and the Evangelical Lutheran Church. All other religions have to undergo registration to worship.

yes, they recognise that they loved to persecute the orthodox church...
 Sad

they have the patriarch! so definately NOT limiting the persecution to protestants and other religious sects (which, incidently, would not be ok)

both the british orthodox metropolitan, and all my eritrean friends (real ones, not computer ones!) confirm that the situation is very bad. indeed, the last news i heard (about 2 months ago) was that the patriarch aboune antonius is ill and not receiving proper medical attention.
