(Clearwisdom.net) In the months leading up to the Beijing Olympic Games, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) intensified its persecution of Falun Gong. Many practitioners were arrested just in the Datong Area of Shanxi Province alone.

At 2 p.m. on June 17, 2008, Mr. Liu Zhencheng from Situanbao Village, Youzhai Town, Yanggao County, Datong City, was arrested and taken from his home. The police also searched his home. Now he is detained in the Yanggao County Detention Center.

Ms. Zhang Yueying, 74 years old, is a retired teacher at the Datong Arts School.
