A new date is expected to be announced soon for the trial of Pakistani Christian woman Asia Bibi.

She’s facing the death penalty after being accused of insulting Islam – something she denies.

Her case has gone to the country’s highest court, but her hearing was postponed last year when one of the judges claimed he had a conflict of interest.

On Saturday, the Chief Justice of Pakistan confirmed a new hearing will be held soon and has ordered full security provisions to be given to Asia Bibi’s legal team.

Those who support or speak out on behalf of the woman are often targeted by extremists. Politician Salman Taseer was assassinated back in 2011 after defending her.

  • Pray the Lord will grow His church in this nation and strengthen the faith of the Christians, who frequently face severe opposition.
