China closing Christian churches in Easter crackdown

Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has said he is ‘appalled’ at the ongoing persecution of Christians.

One of the countries clamping down is China.

Churches continue to be closed, and Christians have been arrested because of their faith.

That is because the country is officially an atheist state, with freedom of religion guaranteed in the constitution.
