Chinese Christians fear crackdown

Christians in the south eastern city of Wenzhou are warning of a crackdown on their faith, following the destruction of one church and warnings to others.

Wenzhou is often called the Jerusalem of China with over a thousand churches, but events of the past week have caused consternation among its Christian congregations.
