The persecution of Christians in parts of the world is at near “genocide” levels, according to a report published by BBC.
The review estimated that one in three people suffer from religious persecution.
Christians were the most persecuted religious group, it found.
The interim report said the main impact of “genocidal acts against Christians is exodus” and that Christianity faced being “wiped out” from parts of the Middle East.
The review is due to publish its final findings in the summer.
