Ten Iranians who converted from Islam to Christianity in recent months have been arrested in the southern city of Shiraz.
More encouraging news:
Under the new law, anyone born to a Muslim father who decides to renounce Islam and convert to another faith, faces the death penalty.
The punishment is currently absent from the Iranian penal code even though in the past, dozens of Christian converts and followers of the Bahai faith have been hanged.
A commenter at Dhimmi Watch writes:
And Obama Hussein Barack who was born of a muslim father wants to go to Iran and talk with them.
