NEW INDEPENDENT REPORT CONCLUDES FALUN GONG ORGANS BEING HARVESTED, VICTIMS KILLED
A 45-page investigative report was released Thursday that addresses allegations of organ harvesting from Falun Gong detainees; the Falun Dafa Information Center is calling the report, “vitally important.” Coauthored by former Canadian Secretary of State (Asia-Pacific) David Kilgour and human rights attorney David Matas, the report draws “the regrettable conclusion that the allegations are true.”Speaking with the press, Kilgour said on Wednesday that, “I don’t think anyone can have any doubt that this unbelievable practice is continuing… They take both kidneys, then the heart and the skin and the corneas and the liver, and your body is then thrown in the incinerator.”

SOURCE IN CHINA: MILITARY PURGE FOLLOWS ORGAN HARVESTING DISCLOSURE
A man who identifies himself as a veteran military doctor from China’s Shenyang province says that a “cleansing” has taken place within China’s military ranks. The doctor previously told The Epoch Times that 36 secret concentration camps for Falun Gong exist, and that the Chinese military has been running a systematic business of harvesting organs from Falun Gong practitioners. “A number of military personnel, scientific researchers, military supervisors and medical personnel around me have gone missing. Even their family members have been isolated for inspection. No one has ever heard from them or knows their current whereabouts. I feel deeply sorry to see that many innocent colleagues have paid the price for the truth I have exposed.”

20 DEATHS FROM PERSECUTION CONFIRMED DURING THE MONTH OF JUNE
During the month of June, Falun Gong’s Chinese-language Minghui website documented the cases of 20 individuals who were killed in China because they practiced Falun Gong. Many of the cases are very detailed and include not only the name, age, and date of death of the individual, but also the name of the jail or labor camp in which they were tortured, the methods with which they were tortured, the names of the perpetrators, and, in some cases, even the personal phone numbers of the parties responsible for their deaths, such as prison guards. For example, see the story of how Ms. Que Fazhi died an agonizing death from torture: http://clearharmony.net/articles/200606/33840.html

CONFIRMED DEATH TOLL NEARS 3,000 – REAL FIGURE MUCH HIGHER
The cases confirmed in June raise the known death toll to 2,916. Given how difficult it is to obtain such sensitive information from China, and the danger to informants, the real figure is estimated to be many times higher – well over 10,000, according to some accounts. According to “Annie,” a nurse who is not a Falun Gong practitioner, in the one Sujiatun hospital in which she worked approximately 4,000 Falun Gong practitioners have been killed. The practitioners were killed as their hearts, liver, kidneys, and cornea were removed and sold for profit, she says.
