The two men have been identified as 28-year-old Mehdi Vaziri, a graphic designer and 27-year-old Amir Kian, a music graduate. Kian and Vaziri are Christian converts and were gathering at the house to pray and study the Bible before it was raided.

The media report says, “The raid happened when the owner of the house, where the house church service was being held, went out to guide two new believers to their gathering. When the authorities attacked, he was still out and because authorities still watch his house, he cannot return there.”
