Hundreds of Islamic refugees convert to Christianity in Germany (or do they?)

(Berlin) Muslim migrants are converting to Christianity in droves in the hope it will greatly improve their chances of winning asylum in Germany. Hundreds of mostly Iranian and Afghan asylum seekers have changed faiths at the evangelical Trinity Church in a leafy Berlin neighbourhood alone. Many claim true belief prompted the move, but the decision undoubtedly boosts their chances of being granted asylum by allowing them to claim they would face persecution if sent home.
