The notorious Nakura prison.
On Feb. 26, 2021, a group of 21 Christian women was released from the notorious Nakura prison.
Many of the released prisoners were part of a large group of Christians arrested in the summer of 2017. Over 200 were arrested, including a group taken during a wedding celebration. The newly released women were the last female prisoners held at the prison on the Red Sea. One woman was 15 years old when she was arrested; she is now 29, and her parents have since divorced. Another was 16 when she was arrested; both of her parents died while she was in prison. Other Christians are providing clothing, food and housing to the released women.
