(Wenzhou, Zhejiang—Sept. 21, 2015) Religious persecution in the city of Wenzhou in China’s coastal Zhejiang continues to climb as authorities detain more protesters and church leaders.

The latest in this slew of detentions is Cai Xiaobing, the organizer of Xia’ao Church, who was taken into detention on Sept. 14. Other Wenzhou Christians have been summoned by police, including ten individuals from the Wutian Church District. Among them was church elder Wang Jiaen, whom police called upon three times. Others are briefly detained then released, such as Jiang Xianyun, a church deacon, who was taken in secret on Sept. 10 and held for one day, or Pastor Hu Mingjin and elder Zheng Jinyuan, both taken on Sept. 12 and released shortly afterward.

Additionally, on Sept. 12, police detained Fengwo Church’s pastor Huang Yizi, who was released from a one-year prison sentence on Aug. 1. Local authorities have confirmed the detention with Huang’s wife but declined to give an official notice. Huang has been prohibited from contacting family members or a lawyer since he was taken into custody.

Finally, on Sept. 8, the pastor of Pingyang Church, Zhang Chongzhu, disappeared into police custody.

As of Sept. 17, a total of 15 Christians and legal advisors in Wenzhou have been detained since Aug. 25.
