According to initial reports, in just a few days, more than 100 people were arrested in the cities of Jilin and Siping alone.
From August 21 to 22, authorities in Hanjiang district of Fujian’s Putian city dispatched many police offices to raid the homes of CAG members, arresting 16 believers within just two days. To date, their whereabouts remain unknown.
During an arrest operation in Shanghai on August 14, at least 30 members of the CAG were arrested.
