Two Christian converts from Islam planned to meet in a northern Iranian city earlier this month but were detained on the same day in what human rights activists are calling “a rash of arrests” in the area.

Behnam Ersali and Davood Rasooli, both residents of Karaj, were arrested on Friday, November 16, just hours before they were due to meet in Mashhad, according to advocacy organization Middle East Concern (MEC). It is believed that their phones were bugged and that Iranian intelligence agents intercepted calls between the pair.
