'Underground' Chinese priests arrested, beaten
Catholic World News - April 12, 2011
Two Catholic priests of the 'underground' Church in China's Hebei province have been arrested and beaten recently, AsiaNews reports.
The faithful in Hebei know of 20 priests who have been pressured--in some cases tortured--by officials trying to persuade them to register with the Catholic Patriotic Association.
