US body sees Iraq, Afghan religious persecution
Wed May 3, 2006 1:16pm ET


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. government commission warned on Wednesday of rising religious persecution in Iraq and Afghanistan, two countries invaded by the United States in the past five years to free their people from tyranny and abuse.

The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, in its annual report to Congress and President George W. Bush's administration, also harshly criticized three key U.S. allies -- Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Egypt -- for their poor performance on religious rights.

The commission designated 11 countries as being "of particular concern" because of extreme religious persecution: Myanmar (former Burma), North Korea, Eritrea, Iran, Pakistan, China, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Vietnam.

Another seven states were placed on a watch list because of serious violations: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Belarus, Cuba, Egypt, Indonesia and Nigeria.

2. Oh, we fixed Afghanistan, already
those people are free especially the women. No more veils for them. Mini skirts and shortie tops are okay. No rubble from any bombed out buildings any where. Perfectly good country. All been rebuilt.
