China: Authorities forcibly demolish ‘illegal’ church; elderly congregants injured

Communist officials demolished a church in China’s Henan province for engaging in “illegal fundraising” after forcibly removing congregants, injuring two elderly people in the process.

According to Chinese persecution watchdog Bitter Winter, True Jesus Church was razed to the ground completely. A new lawn with saplings was planted in place of the church, bearing no trace of its existence.

The persecution began on June 22 when about 60 officials with the Religious Affairs Bureau stormed True Jesus Church, located in Caidu town of Shangcai county, under the jurisdiction of Zhumadian city in the central province of Henan.
