Iran has ordered members of the Bahai faith formerly employed by the government to pay back their lifetime earnings, the National Assembly of the Bahais in Britain said Friday. The judicial order led to a sharp rise in the number of arrests among followers of the 300,000-strong religion in Iran, a statement issued by the Bahai assembly said. It added that 101 believers have been jailed since September, most of them for failing to comply with the repayment order because of financial problems.
