Falun Dafa practitioner Zhang Aijiao, female, 39 years old, was a resident of the fourth group of Xiaonan village, Ganhe branch, Xiantao city, Hubei Province. She was severely tortured by the Xiantao city's "610 Office" [an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems] because she remained firm in her cultivation of Falun Dafa. She died on May 24, 2002 because her wounds were too severe to recover.
