(Clearwisdom.net) On the night of January 9, 2010, officers from the Linxi Police Station in Lixi Town, Yutian County, Tangshan City, Hebei Province, arrested Falun Gong practitioners Ms. Xu Cuiyun and Ms. Shao Shumin. The officers confined the women in an iron cage and sprayed a kind of corrosive powder into their faces and noses.

The next day, the two practitioners were transferred to Yutian County. At the same time, their homes were ransacked. The police took away their personal property. Their husbands were taken to the Lixi Police Station. On the afternoon of January 11, 2010, Ms. Xu's husband and Ms. Shao's husband were released after the police extorted 10,000 yuan from each family.

Ms. Xu Cuiyun, about 40 years old, lives in Linnancang Town, Yutian County. Her husband, Zhang Delin, works in Linnancang Mine, part of the Kailuan Mining Administration Bureau. Because she practices Falun Gong, Ms. Xu follows Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance at all times and has benefited both physically and mentally. Her family lives in harmony. After the CCP started to persecute Falun Gong in 1999, she was arrested by the Yutian County 610 Office and sent to the Kaiping Forced Labor Camp.

In order to inform more people about the glory of Dafa, she talked to those around her about Falun Dafa. On the night of January 9, 2010, Ms. Xu and Ms. Shao were arrested by officers from the Linxi Police Station while the women were posting Falun Gong posters. They were interrogated. The police took away a laptop and Dafa books from Ms. Xu's home. Ms. Shao's home was also ransacked.

Currently, the two women have been held in the Yutian Detention Center for 15 days. Officers from the Linnancang Mining Police Office still monitor Ms. Xu's husband. Ms. Xu's son, who is a Grade 12 student, is frightened for his mother.
