China installs surveillance cameras in churches for "anti-terrorism and security purposes."

Three-Self Church in China

China has commenced the installation of surveillance cameras in churches for "anti-terrorism and security purposes." This new campaign comes just three years after crosses were ordered removed from the roofs of houses of worship.

The South China Morning Post reports that the Zhejiang government issued the orders to ­churches in Wenzhou late last year and began implementing them before the Lunar New Year ­holiday in January.

“Government officials came to the churches and put up ­cameras by force. Some pastors and worshippers who didn’t agree to the move were dragged away,” a Christian in Wenzhou said, without specifying when the conflict occurred.
