China: Officials Arrest Pastors in Central and Eastern Regions

China Aid reports that police in Shandong Province (Eastern China) have condemned two evangelical house church leaders, Zhang Geming and Sun Qingwen, to a year of “re-education through labour”. Both were detained July 1 along with four other pastors, and accused of “using an evil cult to obstruct the law”. The rest of the group was released after paying a 1,000 euro fine. In Shanxi Province (Central China) police also arrested twelve Christian leaders under the same pretext after the group was discovered distributing Bibles in Jiaocheng county.
