Mohbat News, a Christaan news site reporting in Persian, reports that a Christian cemetery in Kerman province has been completely destroyed. The destruction follows the demolition, at night, of a historic church in Kerman and the vandalism of others. The cemetery, in the grounds of an old fortress, was said by local people to be more than 200 years old. Muhammad Mahdi Afzali, Director of public relations for the Cultural Heritage of Kerman, said that “the cemetery has been destroyed by the local authority and the Cultural Heritage foundation to facilitate projects around this fort, and the fort of Ardeshir.” But in an interview with a government news agency, he denied this.
