(Guiyang, Guizhou—Dec. 9, 2015) Authorities in China’s inland Guizhou province administratively detained Yang Hua, a pastor of the recently persecuted Huoshi Church, today.

Details are limited at this time; however, China Aid will continue to monitor this situation and update the story as more information becomes available.

China Aid reports on stories such as Pastor Yang’s detention and the persecution against Huoshi Church in order to expose the abuses perpetrated by the Chinese government.

(Correction: A previous report stated that Yang Hua was criminally detained, rather than administratively detained.)
