Chinese authorities clamp down on tiny Jewish community

In China, only five religions are officially recognised by the state and Judaism is not one of them. The eastern city of Kaifeng is home to a tiny Jewish community that dates back a thousand years.

A programme prepared by Patrick Lovett, Elom Marcel Toble and Claire Pryde.
