Report: 9 Christians detained in China

December 03, 2012

Nine Christians have been detained, and two have been sentenced to a labor camp, after they attempted to evangelize during a week-long period in late July and early August, according to a report from the China Aid Association.

The detained Christians were providing medical care and evangelizing in Inner Mongolia, which is located in the northeastern portion of the People’s Republic of China. Following their detention, two women in the group were sentenced to a “re-education through labor” camp.
