Hunger striking asylum seekers seek shelter in Danish church

Ten Iranian asylum seekers have taken shelter in a church in Nørrebro.  Their asylum request has been rejected and they fear for their lives if they return to Iran.  Several are Christians. 
Over 60 Iranians and Syrians in several asylum centers are on hunger strike in protest against their long stay in the centers.  The Nørrebro Iranians are also participating in the hunger strike.
