SINGAPORE — A 38-year-old female member of the Falun Gong spiritual group who was jailed this week has gone on a hunger strike, the local Sunday Times newspaper reported Sunday.

Cheng Lu Jin and fellow Falun Gong member Ng Chye Huay, 40, were arrested by Singapore police recently for distributing video compact disks about the sect and taking part in an illegal public assembly. The daily quoted a prisons spokesman as saying Cheng has refused all food since she started serving her 24-week jail term, to protest her prison sentence. (Kyodo News)
