persecution that merits the attention and assistance of The Voice of the
Martyrs has been identified and defined in two categories: Restricted
Nation and Hostile Area.
Restricted Nation -
This includes countries where government policy or practice prevents
Christians from obtaining Bibles or other Christian literature. Also
included are countries with government-sanctioned circumstances or
anti-Christian laws that lead to Christians being harassed, imprisoned,
killed or deprived of possessions or liberties because of their witness.
Hostile Area -
This includes large areas in nations where governments consistently attempt
to provide protection for the Christian population, but Christians are
victims of violence because of their witness.
