By On Your Side Newsroom. CREATED Aug 14, 2014

A Boise pastor being held in an Iranian prison says he is afraid of being murdered by the ISIS terrorist group, according to the American Center For Law and Justice.

Saeed Abedini has been a prisoner in Iran for two years after being found guilty of trying to set up a Christian orphanage.

The ACLJ says Abedini told family members that other inmates in his prison ward who claim to be members of the ISIS group and have threatened him because of his Christian faith.

Saeed’s wife, Nagmeh, posted on her Facebook page that, “This is hard to hear as his wife, especially with all that is happening in Iraq. I am believing and trusting in Jesus.
