Raids on Chinese House Churches

From RFA:

At least 10 members of an unofficial “house” church in the eastern Chinese province of Jiangsu have been injured after a local property developer launched an unannounced eviction raid Wednesday on the building where their meetings were being held.

“They are developing this plot of land, and they wanted the land on which our church is built,” a pastor surnamed Ding at the Chengnan Church in the Pinghu district of Yancheng city said.

“No agreement had been reached, and they hadn’t even carried out a valuation of the property. A deputy secretary from the municipal government led the gang—there were more than 200 people,” Ding said.
