Two men are facing trial in Algeria after one of their wives, a Muslim, accused them of trying to convert her to Christianity. Rachid Ouali and his 67-year-old friend, Ali Larchi, were summoned before a judge in the town of Bouir after Ouali's wife alleged that the pair brought her to church and urged her to leave the Islamic faith.

The two men have denied the accusations, and Ouali's wife allegedly later told her husband that she had made the complaint while under pressure from her Muslim relatives. According to her complaint, Ouali's wife was at lunch with the two men when they started sharing their testimonies of Christ's goodness and faithfulness in their own lives. She recalled that the pair mentioned Jesus several times and exclaimed "Hallelujah" to each other, as reported by Morning Star News.

Hearing their conversation, the woman jumped up and shouted, "You have brought me here to convert me and to deny my religion. You laid a trap for me," according to Ouali.
