Eight members of Falun Gong were sentenced to as many as 13 years in prison for taking over local television and radio signals in eastern China's Anhui Province.

An appeals court upheld a decision to give them sentences of 5 to 13 years, Xinhua said.

The court said there was evidence that the eight people had bought tools and equipment that helped them take over television and radio signals on May 31 to publicize the movement, according to the report.

At least 3,900 households were affected during the 30-minute takeover, during which pirate transmissions touting the benefits of the group were played, the news agency said.
