Religious Freedom Report: Africa

Out of the 28 countries where Christians are most persecuted in the world, 13 are African, the Religious Freedom Report 2023 shows, painting a grim picture of religious freedom on the world’s second-largest and second-most populous continent.

Published on Thursday, June 22 by the Catholic pontifical and charity foundation, Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) International, the report lists the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Nigeria, Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger, Somalia, Eritrea, Libya, as some of the African countries where Christians are persecuted the most in Africa.

The ACN report categorizes countries experiencing religious freedom restrictions into four: persecution, discrimination, under observation, and unclassified.

Other African countries in the persecution category are Mozambique, Cameroon, Chad, and Sudan.
