Chinese police detain 'female Jesus cult' members

Police in China have detained 18 suspected members of a banned religious cult, state news agency Xinhua said. Chinese authorities frequently crack down on the cult, having arrested many of its members over the years. After the 2014 McDonald's killing, several cult members were arrested and two later executed. There were a string of arrests in 2012 in Qinghhai and Zhejiang where nearly 100 members were sentenced to prison, including several senior members. In August 2016 local police in Anhui detained 36 members accused of creating and spreading video content for the cult.
