star this property answer text <p>We welcome the work of Human Rights Watch to highlight how Iran continues to deny Baha'is their fundamental rights in their report, &quot;The Boot on my Neck&quot;. At the 55th Human Rights Council, we issued a statement highlighting the scale and severity of freedom of religion or belief abuses globally, including against Baha'is in Iran. We co-sponsored the Iran Human Rights Resolution at UNGA 78, which called on Iran to eliminate, in law and practice, all forms of discrimination, on the basis of religion or belief. We are committed to promoting religious freedom and will continue to work with partners, and the UK Baha'i community, to promote the rights of Baha'is in Iran.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Approximately 8000 former slaves are buried on St Helena and died after being taken to the island by the Royal Navy's West African Squadron trying to halt the slave trade in the mid-nineteenth century. Their precise origins are unknown. Archaeological research was conducted on human remains unearthed in 2008 during preparatory work for St Helena Airport and a further two studies were subsequently completed. Research conducted concluded that some of the individuals likely originated from the Central Africa region.</p> more like this
