Alleged cult members on trial for McDonald's killings
(08-21 11:13)

Five people accused by Chinese authorities of being members of a religious cult have gone on trial for beating a woman to death at a McDonald's restaurant.

The woman, surnamed Wu, was attacked in May at the restaurant in Zhaoyuan, in Shandong province, after refusing to give the suspects her telephone number, the Xinhua news agency said. They were seeking to recruit her into a cult called Quannengshen, it said.

The group, which can be translated as Church of Almighty God, was outlawed by the government in the mid-1990s, according to media reports. --RTHK
