Contacts for The Voice of the Martyrs report that Jamal Abdo and his wife were recently beaten and chased out of a mosque in Ethiopia, where they both worked.
Jamal and his wife accepted Christ months ago. Soon after their conversion, Jamal's friends saw him speaking with some Christians and told the leader of the mosque.
Jamal and his wife were interrogated by Muslim leaders who attempted to persuade them to recant their faith and return to Islam. When they refused they were beaten and dragged out of the mosque.
They have fled to a safe location where they are recovering.
