Chinese police detain ‘female Jesus cult’ members

Police in China have detained 18 suspected members of a banned religious cult, state news agency Xinhua said.

The group is notorious for some of its members beating a woman to death in a McDonald’s restaurant in 2014 after she refused to give them her phone number.

The Church of Almighty God cult was started in the 1990s and claims Jesus was resurrected as a woman in China.

Chinese authorities frequently crack down on the cult, having arrested many of its members over the years.
