Niger

A non-confessional state with considerable freedom of religion and few restrictions on mission work. Tensions between Muslims and Christians have escalated due to the situation in Nigeria, the rise of fundamentalist Muslim groups in Niger and the less-than sensitive approaches of some Pentecostal groups.
