Immigration officers late last night arrested three mainland monks for allegedly working illegally in a funeral home in Sha Tin, where they were paid to chant prayers for the dead. The trio, aged between 34 and 53, came from Haifeng in Guangdong province two days ago on two-way permits. Officers are investigating who hired the monks.
