    STEPANAKERT, Nagorno-Karabakh — On the front line, the stench is overwhelming. The remains of fighters have been lying there for weeks. In the trenches, there is fear. The Armenians are defenseless against the Azerbaijani drones that hover overhead and kill at will. At the military graveyard, bulldozers have scraped away a hillside. It is already lined with two rows of new graves, along with soon-to-be-filled, freshly dug, rectangular holes. The three-week-old conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia over a disputed territory in the Caucasus Mountains, where Europe meets Asia, has settled into a brutal war of attrition, soldiers and civilians said...

    (International Christian Concern) – Persecution of Christians in Indonesia continues to occur, despite the statutory system in this country that clearly provides protection for the freedom of every citizen to embrace and worship according to their respective religions. In practice, it is another story. With the emergence of radical Islamic groups and their bold and open persecution of Christians in Indonesia, the Indonesian government itself does not seem to have the courage to take firm action against the brutality of these radicals. The government allegedly allowed these incidents to happen. In fact, in some cases, the government was involved with...
