BEIJING, CHINA (Worthy News)-- Incidents of Christian persecution in China rose by 42 percent last year as compared with 2011, according to a report by China Aid, a Texas-based human rights group.

The report revealed that persecution in 2012 was 61 percent worse than in 2010; 85 percent worse than in 2009; 120 percent worse than in 2008; 308 percent worse than in 2007, and 372 percent worse than in 2006.

Last year alone, the number of persecuted Chinese Christians rose by roughly 14 percent while individual detentions increased by nearly 12 percent in what China Aid called, "the tip of the iceberg"; at least 132 incidents of persecution involving nearly 5,000 Christians were reported.

Beijing saw the highest number of persecution cases impacting 934 Christians; Xinjiang Uyghur in Northwest China followed with 11 cases involving 382 Christians, while 1,056 Christians in Central China and 750 in East China were also harassed.
