Jinxi Catholic Church in Hunan province was forcibly destroyed. When the priest tried to block the demolition, he was handcuffed and taken away. Bishop Methodius Qu Ailin of Changsha (Hunan) told, the government said it needed the land for a development project and promised to build a new church in the same township ahead of the demolition.
