Christian protesters arrested in China
Three Christian activists have been arrested for the second time in Tiananmen Square just before the Olympic Games open in Beijing.
According to the Associated Press, US-based Patrick Mahoney, director of the Christian Defense Coalition, and Brinda Swindell and Michael McMonagle from Generation Life held a news conference and prayer vigil outside the Mao Zedong Memorial Hall. They were opposing the human rights record of the Chinese Government and religious persecution in that country and Tibet.
The three protesters were detained for an hour before being released.
