Compass Direct News

Compass Direct News in now owned by Open Doors. Open Doors will be redesigning the website and I expect there will be new URLs and the like. Given that a large number of posts relating to persecution news came from or were linked to the Compass Direct News site, it is unlikely these will continue to work. Given the large number of posts, it will take some time for URLs to be corrected here (if indeed I do it at all). As with sites all over the web, addresses come and go and it is difficult for links to remain correct forever.

Until the changes are brought into being I will not be linking to stories on that site and I apologise for the lack of news coming from that source in the intervening time.
