Believers from a Muslim Background cannot openly practice their faith in Yemen. Giving any indication that they might be Christians can have serious consequences. Private worship has become risky for Christians in areas controlled by Islamic militants.

Specific anti-Christian violence against Believers from a Muslim Background occurs from the side of the family, Sunni and – to a lesser extent – Shia radicals.
