Singapore Police arrested 69 people for alleged links with the Jehovah's Witnesses, officials said. JW literature was confiscated in raids on apartments. Since the sect was banned in 1972, more than 100 members have been arrested and court martialed for refusing compulsory military service. Some 2,000 JW members now live in Singapore, a three-fold increase since 1982, a police statement said.
