VATICAN RADIO has reported the “brutal killing” in prison of a woman arrested in China for distributing Bibles.
Jiang Zingxiu, 34, was imprisoned on June 18 for distributing the Bibles to people on the streets of Guizhu province, in southwest China. She died from the blows she allegedly received while in prison, according to Vatican Radio. The state-run newspaper Legal Daily reported that the woman was imprisoned for “inciting social disorders”.
Tan Dewei, Jiang’s mother-in-law, who was arrested with her and then released, said that during the questioning the agents repeatedly struck Jiang.
The police handed the body over to the family, saying that Jiang had died from a sudden heart attack.
