Yakup Cindilli remains in a coma in hospital – following a savage attack on him in October. However, a doctor attending Yakup has noted a tiny, daily improvement in his medical condition.
Yakup (aged 32) was severely beaten for distributing New Testaments in his hometown of Orhangazi in northwestern Turkey. The pastor of the Bursa Protestant Church where Yakup attended has called for a special day of prayer and fasting for Wednesday 17 December, to pray for Yakup‚Äôs complete recovery and for a just court ruling on his case.
