Ms. Kong Xianghua was a 48 year old Falun Dafa practitioner who lived in Longshan Village, Shizijie Town, Donggan City, Liaoning Province. She formerly had breast cancer but was cured after practicing Falun Dafa. She went to Dalian City in 1999 to appeal for the rights of Falun Dafa practitioners and to demand the release of fellow practitioners who had been arrested. She was detained by the police. Since that time, local police repeatedly harassed her, ransacked her home, and confiscated Master Li's photo. In July 2002, police stormed into her home, grabbed her finger by force, and took her fingerprint. As a result of constant threats and intimidation, her old sickness came back, and she died on April 28, 2003.
