A 28-year-old Christian man was tortured to death by Pakistani police late last month.

Pakistani Christian Amir Masih, 28, was illegally detained by police on August 28 for a false theft charge. He was tortured by the police and eventually died of his injuries, according to his brother Sunny Masih.

Sunny Masih also reported that officers urinated on his brother's face and mocked his Christian faith.

Amir Maish died in a hospital on September 2.

🔦 Christian support organization Open Doors ranked Pakistan fifth for its 2019 list of countries where it is most difficult to be a Christian.
