According to people close to the pastor and his family, on January 7, Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, the Christian convert who was re-arrested on Christmas day after serving nearly three years in prison, was freed. Nadarkhani was initially released in November. He had been charged with apostasy and sentenced to death before a higher court commuted the sentence.
