Nun, priest beaten in China
September 08, 2011
A dozen unknown assailants have beaten a nun and a priest in Kangding, a city of 100,000 in a largely Tibetan area of south-central China. The two were seeking the return of Church properties confiscated by the Communist regime in the 1950s.
The Diocese of Kangding’s bishop, Lei Shiyin, was consecrated without a papal mandate last year.
