As of Saturday afternoon, March 3, 2012, the ACLJ’s sources in Iran have confirmed that Christian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani is still alive.
Reports that his execution occurred earlier today are false, and images being circulated purporting to be from his execution are outdated and demonstratively false.
The ACLJ still believes that the execution order has been issued, but we can confirm that as of today Pastor Youcef is still alive. International pressure continues to build on Iran.
Please continue to pray and Tweet for Youcef, as we fight for his life.
