Hundreds of the world's Buddhists gathered at an ancient temple in northwest China's Shaanxi Province yesterday to open the World Fellowship of Buddhists' 27th general conference.

Congregating around a relic said to contain one of the Buddha's finger bones at the Famen Temple in Baoji City, more than 600 representatives from 30 nations and regions were in attendance.

The three-day event marks the first time the Bangkok-headquartered WFB has held its general conference on the Chinese mainland.
