China confiscates Bibles from American Christians

Associated Press via the Washington Post:

A group of American Christians who had more than 300 Bibles confiscated by Chinese officials when they arrived in China is refusing to leave the airport until they get the books back, their leader said Monday.

… A woman on duty at Kunming airport’s customs office confirmed over the telephone late Sunday that 315 Bibles were found in the passengers’ checked baggage.

The officer, who would only give her last name, Xiao, denied confiscating the Bibles. She said authorities were just “taking care” of them and provided no further details.
