Rising Tension

From the AFP:
China's state-run Catholic church ordained a bishop on Friday in defiance of the Vatican, authorities said as they dismissed protests from the Holy See as "rude and unreasonable".

The ordination of Father Yue Fusheng occurred in the northeastern city of Harbin on Friday morning, said Yang Yu, a spokesman for the Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association (CPCA).

The Holy See had warned this week it deemed the consecration illegitimate and vowed to excommunicate priests who participated.
