Around the world, believers, on Friday, prepared for Doomsday and restaurants offered ‘End of the World’ specials. In China, dozens of believers in the doomsday were arrested and DVDs of ‘apocalyptic propanda’ seized. The ‘Mayan apocalypse’ posed a serious danger in China, where 100 believers were arrested for spreading rumours about the ‘end’ on Friday.
The state-run Xinhua News Agency said police arrested 101 believers
and confiscated leaflets, DVDs and other apocalyptic propaganda in eight
provinces across the country.
Nearly half of those detained are reported to be members of the group, Almighty God, which is also called Eastern Lightning.
