| The US Department of State report "United States Policies in Support of Religious Freedom: Focus on Christians" includes a few brief mentions of Bahá'ís in Iran; the relevant passages are excerpted here.
| This report is taken from a webpage of the United States Department of State titled "97/07/22 Report on Religious Freedom: Focus on Christians," at www.state.gov/www/global/human_rights/970722_relig_rpt_christian.html. The lengthy document mentions Bahá'ís in passing a few times; the following is the only extended discussion of the Faith.
A colophon at the end of the report gives this information: "This report was prepared pursuant to the Managers Statement which accompanies the Omnibus Consolidated Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 1997, House Report 3610: "that the Department of State report to the Congress on or before January 15, 1997 with a detailed summary of United States policies designed to reduce and eliminate today's mounting persecution of Christians throughout the world."
