An Iranian economic migrant in Hamburg, Germany might just have become a genuine refugee after converting to Christianity.
The Iranian national, 24, was left “seriously injured” after being set upon by an Afghan migrant on Sunday in a refugee camp in Hamburg-Eidelstedt, Die Welt reports. Police said the man was beaten with a telescopic baton, with the Afghan responsible declaring that conversion was a “sin.”
The Iranian is thought to have told some Afghan migrants a few days prior to the attack that he had embraced Christianity once in Germany.
The young Iranian man was left unconscious, and 15 to 20 people stepped in to pull the attacker away and protect the convert.
