A member of the banned Falun Gong is silhouetted as he performs breathing exercises at a private place in Beijing August 8. China, waging a war of words against the spiritual movement that claims 100 million members, labelled it a very dangerous cult on Tuesday. China outlawed Falun Gong on July 22, calling it an illegal organisation that corrupted the people's minds and sabotaged stability. A large number of Falun Gong members are continuing to practise at private places despite the government ban. ASW/CC
