KHARTOUM, SUDAN (Worthy News)– Dozens of Sudanese Christians were thought to be trapped in a Sudanese prison as violence raged in renewed fighting between two Arab tribes, killing scores of people.

At least 55 Christians were detained by the government of Sudan over two weeks ago on "false accusations" of allegedly receiving money from foreign countries, including Israel, according to Christians with close knowledge about the case.

Advocacy group Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) said the group, which has no political affiliations and includes church leaders, was jailed as part of a wider crackdown on Christians in the volatile Islamic country.
