Iran's death sentence for Christian pastor Youcef Nadarkhani's has not been carried out, and now there are complications developing that could mean good news for the faithful believer, according to reports from those with contacts inside the repressive nation. . . .

American Center for Law and Justice Executive Director Jordan Sekulow says difficulties have come up for the Iranian prosecution of the Christian because the 34-year-old pastor didn't fit the definition of an apostate according to Iranian law.

"Technically the death penalty hasn't been overturned. The case was sent back ... to review because there hasn't been an execution for apostasy since 1990," Sekulow said. . . .

"Because of the conditional thing and the ancestors, they took the unprecedented move which we believe would not have happened without the international attention, they said, 'We're going to the ayatollah with this thing,'" Sekulow added. . . .
