China accused of targeting Christian symbols

Christian groups say officials are removing crosses and demolishing churches in an anti-religion campaign.

    Christian groups in eastern China say they will guard their churches from what they call an anti-religion campaign by the government.

    They accuse officials of removing crosses from their churches and, in some cases, demolishing them.

    Officials say the size of the churches violates rules.
