A group of Christians in Hidalgo State, Mexico, were allegedly threatened by a government official with death after attempting to meet to discuss religious persecution, a watchdog group has said.

The International Christian Concern said that the threats were issued back in April by "Community Delegate" Jesus Dominguez Hernandez, who found out that the Christian community of Chichiltepec village attempted to meet with his office and outline their concerns. Mexican human rights organization Impulso 18 said that during the meeting, Hernandez became "infuriated" and "threatened to kill all of the Christians present."

Christians in the village have reportedly been pressured to renounce their faith, and faced consequences for refusing.

...The watchdog group added that there are at least 70 open case of religious persecution going on against minority Christian communities in Chiapas, Hidalgo, Oaxaca, Puebla and Guerrero alone.
