Pastor Saeed Abedini is in need of surgery from prison beatings. (Facebook)
This has been a week of progress in American Pastor Saeed’s case—a U.S. citizen wrongfully imprisoned in Iran for his Christian faith—but his pain and injuries remain an increasing concern.
On the same day that Pastor Saeed’s wife and young children were able to meet with President Obama in Pastor Saeed’s hometown here in the U.S., a member of his family in Iran was able to visit Pastor Saeed in prison—Saeed’s first visitor in more than a month.
Pastor Saeed’s stomach pain—lingering injuries from prison beatings—remains a concern. Pastor Saeed expressed increased amounts of pain. He has still not received the critical medical attention he needs in a private hospital. He needs surgery.
But most of all, he needs to be brought home.
