Afghan Christian Ordered Executed within Days; Said Musa, 45, to Be Hanged for His Christianity

An Afghan aid worker is facing execution within days for converting to Christianity, the Christian Post website reports today (February 12, 2011).

Said Musa, 45, was told by a judge that he would be hanged within days unless he reconverts to Islam.

But the father of six has refused to renounce his faith, saying, "My body is theirs to do what they want with. Only God can decide if my spirit goes to hell."

Musa has been held in prison since last May, after a local TV network broadcast secret images of Afghan Christians being baptized by westerners.
