NCRI - The Iranian regime's Ministry of Intelligence and Security has summoned a pastor of an evangelical congregation on Monday amid a wider crackdown on Christians, a source has told BosNewsLife.

"Pastor Keyvan Rajabi, from the northern city of Rasht, was contacted today (Monday) that he must report to MOIS offices in Rasht for an interview," a close friend told BosNewsLife on condition of anonymity citing security concerns.

The regime's intelligence agents want to hear the pastor as part of "a wider crackdown" on Christians, added the friend, who has been closely involved in supporting the congregation.

Elsewhere, "several Christians in Isfahan have had their homes raided," and a Christian Allen Dirigorosiyan has been arrested," the friend said.
