Differing reports from Iran, Israel and the United States have the international community continually questioning the fate of Christian pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, who is imprisoned in Iran on charges of apostasy and, according to those close to his case, has been sentenced to death for refusing to recant his faith. . . .

One report in particular, released by Iran's state-funded network Press TV, denies the issuing of an execution order. It also references Nadarkhani's Christianity, which Jordan Sekulow, executive director of the American Center for Law and Justice, deems a "slip" on behalf of the Iranian news network.

On Feb. 21, the American Center for Law and Justice announced that Iranian courts may have issued an execution warrant for pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, who has been imprisoned on charges of apostasy and attempting to evangelize Muslims since Oct. 2009. . . .
