Comment Email Print
 The Bishop of Yixian in north east China, Shi Enxiang, 79, has been arrested together with several priests and lay Catholics. The Cardinal Kung Foundation, which campaigns for human rights in China, said that the bishop was detained when he visited Beijing for Easter, on 13 April. Bishop Shi Enxiang has already spent 30 years in prison. His most recent period of detention was from 1990 to 1993. The Chinese authorities have not confirmed the Bishop's arrest. The Foundation say there was a major clampdown on Christians over the Easter period in Beijing, the Hebei province, Fujian, Jiangxi and Mongolia.
