Crackdown on churches is "spreading" in Southern Laos. According to Worthy News, a government crackdown on churches in southern Laos is spreading to a new district with the brief detention of two "prominent pastors" for alleged unauthorized worship and their involvement in evangelism and an order to take down crosses. Officials reportedly said they suspect the leaders are holding illegal church services with outside support. Additionally, police and district officials accused the two men of "proselytizing" and ordered them to stop spreading the Christian message to the Lao people "because due to their witness a large number of people have come to believe in the Christian faith."
