101 detained in China over doomsday rumors

Police in China have detained over 100 individuals for spreading rumors about the end of the world.

The arrests were carried out across eight provinces and included several members of a fringe Christian group called 'Almighty God'. Authorities seized leaflets, books and DVDs designed to promote the idea that the world is coming to an end on December 21st.

Among those arrested were four doom-sayers who had been preaching through a loudspeaker to people in the streets. Thirty-seven members of the 'Amighty God' group were also picked up in northwest China's Qinghai province while four more were detained in the Inner Mongolia region on suspicion of swindling elderly people living in some of the country's remote mountainous areas.
