Three Christian vicars from the United States, Philippines and Kenya converted to Islam after they attended lectures by key scholars in the Gulf kingdom.

Newspapers said the three went together to an Islamic guidance centre in the capital Riyadh and embraced the new religion.

“I have been a vicar since 2002 and I have offered my life to the church…but I now feel that I want to change my life and get out of the vicious cycle….can you help me,” ‘Sabq’ newspaper quoted the unnamed US vicar as telling a Saudi scholar.
