(Langzhong, Sichuan—April 1, 2017) More than 20 police officers from China’s southwestern Sichuan Province recently detained 15 Christians for attending a Bible study.

Authorities broke into a church in mid-March and took into custody 15 Christians who had gathered for a Bible study. Officers accused them of illegally gathering and “gathering a crowd to disturb public order,” and detained them for 15 days. Additionally, they confiscated church seating, projectors, and air conditioning equipment.
