A U.S. senator says religious intolerance appears to be on the rise in some countries.

During a hearing of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee last week, Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina) voiced his concerns to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and claimed religious rights are being violated in many countries.
"It seems increasingly over the last year or two that human rights, religious freedom in China, Egypt, India, Vietnam [and] other countries, [there are] more and more reports that there's less religious tolerance," he stated.
