‘Underground’ priest detained yet again | ucanews.com

Officials in northern China’s Hebei province have rearrested Father Peter Wang Zhong of Xiwanzi moments before he could walk to freedom following a three-year prison term.

Sources told ucanews.com that Father Wang’s relatives and about 20 laypeople were waiting to pick him from Tangshan Jidong prison at around 4 a.m. on July 24.

They saw Father Wang walking toward the prison gates before three or four men grabbed him and dragged him to a nearby police car.
