The bomb attack that targeted Israeli tourists in Bulgaria and killed six is part of a trend of threats to religious freedom.

Eight countries exhibit widespread religious persecution. They are major U.S. Middle East ally, Saudi Arabia, and a major U.S. trading partner, China, as well as North Korea, Iran, Sudan, Eritrea, Myanmar and Uzbekistan.

Authoritarian regimes in many countries were using religious persecution for political ends; Russia and Uzbekistan have invoked national security as a pretext for restricting the rights of peaceful religious groups.
