(Beijing—Oct. 28, 2016) The Shengai Fellowship Family Church in Beijing had organized a gathering on Oct.7 in the home of Xu Yonghai, an elder in the church, however, the police raided and terminated the meeting. More than thirty police officers guarded the building and demanded the gathering be cancelled.

Xu believes the predicted attendance of foreign reporters was what prompted the raid.
