China cracks down on 'underground' Easter services

In China, at least 20 members of a Christian church have been detained as they gathered for an Easter service.

The leaders of the Xiaowang church are now under house arrest.

China's constitution allows freedom of worship in state registered churches but most of the country's estimated 70m Christians refuse to bow to government control.
