CWN Editor's Note: Four priests of the “underground” Catholic Church in the Chinese province of Hebei have been taken into custody by police, because they refused to join the government-backed Patriotic Association. The whereabouts of the arrested priests are not known. The arrests come soon after the agreement between Beijing and Rome governing the appointment of new Catholic bishops.
