​The overwhelming majority of people in Eritrea can practise their religion peacefully and are allowed to do so. However, the detention of individuals and groups from proscribed religious groups, and senior individuals from religious organisations, is of concern. The UK regularly raises this matter at UN Human Rights Council dialogues on Eritrea.
