China has prohibited buying the Bible from major online stores, whilst claiming the country promotes religious freedom.

According to widespread media reports, Amazon China and two other large online outlets have dropped the Bible from sale.

The BBC’s Chinese Service Editor Howard Zhang said it was the latest attempt by China’s communist leaders to seize greater control.
