Jubilee Campaign highlights persecution of Vietnamese hill Christians


A Christian human rights group has received reports of a state persecution of Christian hill tribes in Vietnam.

Jubilee Campaign has been informed of the persecution of the Montagnard people of the Central Highlands.

The Montagnard Foundation has reported sterilisations, executions, imprisonment, disappearances and forced relocations of whole villages.

The Montagnard, or Degar, people form 30 tribes and number about 600,000, about 400,000 of whom are mostly Catholic Christians.
