Zhejiang: 360 crosses, Christian buildings destroyed
Catholic World News - July 29, 2014
Chinese Communist officials have continued their campaign against Christian institutions in the eastern province of Zhejiang.
Since January, the government has demolished 360 crosses or Christian buildings, according to an AsiaNews report. On July 21, several hundred men attacked a Salvation Army church in Wenzhou, the province’s largest city, and tore down its cross.
In Ningbo, a city of 7.6 million, the Catholic cathedral burned to the ground on July 28. The destruction of the cathedral, built in 1872, has been ruled an accident.
