Local authorities in Xinjiang’s Manas county arrested four people after a villager reported about their whereabouts.
In late March, a man ventured into a village to run some errands. A villager identified him as being the son of a local house church leader, Liu Zhang (pseudonym), and reported his whereabouts to the police.
Around midnight, the village cadres and the police raided the house of the 80-year-old Mr. Liu in Manas county of Changji prefecture. They seized several copies of Bible as well as nearly 130,000 USD in cash. The police also took control of two single-story houses, both owned by Mr. Liu.
The police arrested Mr. Liu, his son, and two Christians who were his guests that day. All four are currently held at a ‘transformation through education’ camp in Lanzhouwan town in Manas county.
