Vietnam's underground churches

Followers of faiths not sanctioned by the state face persecution.

    In Vietnam, freedom of religion is officially protected by the constitution.

     

    But followers of faiths not sanctioned by the state could be subject to persecution.

     

    One such faith is the protestant strand of Christianity.

     

    Al Jazeera gained exclusive access to one underground church, where worshippers practice in secret.
