Two Women Ministers Detained & Beaten by Police in Xinjiang are Released

Friday, May 27, 2011

China Aid Association
(Korla, Xinjiang – May 28, 2011) Two women house church ministers in the far northwest region of Xinjiang were taken into police custody on Saturday and beaten, but were quickly released early Sunday morning, according to ChinaAid sources.
The two – Li Tianping and Wang Ling – were detained by police in the city of Korla at 7 p.m. and taken to the Sayibage police station, but were released Sunday at 3 a.m. Sources credited prayer for the speedy release.
The detentions occurred after an outdoor praise and worship service at a square in Korla that was attended by about 100 house church Christians was raided by local police. The two women were detained by police while leaving the square.
The Xinjiang authorities might have been aware of the crackdown in Beijing on Shouwang Church’s outdoor worship attempts and concluded that no outdoor worship should be tolerated.
