Since 1993, President Afwerki has led a brutal regime that commits massive human rights violations. The government is known to conduct raids on houses and imprison hundreds of Christians in inhumane conditions, such as packing them into storage containers in scorching heat. Christians from non-mainline church groups, such as evangelicals, face the harshest persecution.
