Iran: survive

EU is very concerned about the situation of religious minorities in Iran.
The EU is deeply concerned by the arrests since April of Iranian converts to christianity and members of the Baha'i community. It calls for their immediate release and the cessation of all forms of violence and discrimination against them.
There have been many reports that people belonging to the Christian, Baha'i, Sufi and Sunni minorities in Iran are regularly suffering forms of persecution such as confiscation of property, desecration of their places of worship, imprisonment and numerous acts of violence, including some life threatening.

In Khash, Sistan-e-Baluchestan province, a public prosecutor survived an assault by gunmen.
The gunmen escaped, the prosecutor was only slightly injured.

In Mahabad, Kurdistan province, a sunni cleric has been assassinated when he returned after morning prayers.
Two unknown gunmen on a motorbike opened fire on the cleric.
According to the prosecutor it is not clear whether the assassination was politically motivated or was the result of personal disputes.
