"Almighty God" cult members stand trial

BEIJING, Aug. 12 (Xinhua) -- Leading members of a branch of the "Almighty God" cult in northeast China have stood trial in Daqing, Heilongjiang Province, since July 31, a police source said Sunday.

Heilongjiang police arrested the leader and some key members of the cult branch in northeast China in June 2017, according to a police statement.

"Almighty God," known in Chinese as Quannengshen, grabbed national headlines in May 2014 when videos went viral showing five of its members beating a woman to death at a McDonald's in Zhaoyuan, eastern Shandong Province, condemning her as an "evil spirit" as she refused to give them her mobile phone number for recruitment purposes.
