Christian women in Pakistan face kidnappings and forced conversions. According to International Christian Concern, Rebecca Masih, a young Christian health worker, was on her way to work when she was kidnapped by armed men in Sukkur. Rebecca's disappearance marked the third documented abduction of a Christian woman in Pakistan since August.
