Published: September 28, 2010

Hundreds of gay men have been rounded up and taken away in an ongoing police operation at Mudanyuan in Haidian district.

About 20 police vehicles carrying four officers each including SWAT teams invaded the city’s largest outdoor gay hangout Sunday night, according to a nearby news vendor. "The arrested were taken away in more than 10 police cars," she said.

Police hit the area again late last night, according to information breaking online at press time.

"You can’t imagine how deeply over 200 of us were wounded by this experience," one of the arrested gay men told the Global Times Monday on condition of anonymity.

"I will never go to that place in the future and I don’t want to talk about it either."

He refused to discuss details of his treatment by the police.

They were taken to the Huayuanlu police station, revealed an online post on a website popular with Mudanyuan visitors.

"They were required to show their identity cards, take a blood test, have their photo taken and leave their fingerprints," it read.
