Plainclothes officials and members of the National Guard raided a Tashkent worship service on Sunday, Nov. 25, filming those in attendance and searching the building for “unlawful propaganda.” The authorities photographed everyone present, recording their names, addresses and places of employment, and confiscated 7,800 DVDs and pieces of Christian literature. They later took 14 people to the police station, making them stand in the cold before interrogating them for nine hours. According to those interrogated, the police chief warned them that authorities would continue to come every Sunday until they stop meeting for worship.
