China: nearly 200 Christians arrested for public prayer
Catholic World News - April 11, 2011
Chinese officials have arrested nearly 200 Protestants who joined in a public prayer service after they were ousted from a restaurant where they had been meeting.
The Shouwang Christian community, one of China's largest unregistered religious groups, announced plans to pray in the streets after government pressure forced the group out of their previous meeting site. As members of the community arrived, police took them into custody and loaded them onto buses.
