(Hetian, Xinjiang—Oct. 25, 2016) Authorities recently imprisoned a Christian couple from a house church in China’s northwestern Xinjiang and another woman visiting them because they displayed a cross in their home.
Dai, a Christian who hosts a house church in his home, and his wife, Li, were taken away by the local police, along with a woman who was visiting them. Additionally, their home was raided, and religious items were confiscated. This is the second time this year that the church has been invaded
At the present time, Dai has been released, but Li and their guest are still detained.
China Aid exposes abuses, such as those experienced by Li, Dai and their visitor, in order to promote religious freedom in China.
