Britain turns red to remember Christians and other religions persecuted around the world

Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament and a string of other landmarks around Britain are turning red to draw attention to the plight of people around the world being killed or persecuted for their faith. Churches, mosques and synagogues are among buildings being illuminated as part what is being dubbed “Red Wednesday” to honour the victims of religious hatred in an initiative conceived by the Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need.
