Canadian Pastor Feared Detained in North Korea

Fears are growing for a Canadian pastor currently in North Korea who has not been heard from since Jan. 31 when he was invited by officials to the capital Pyongyang, according to a well-known South Korean activist.

Reverend Hyeon Soo Lim, of the Light Korean Presbyterian Church in Toronto, has been to North Korea “hundreds of times,” a fellow church member in Canada said, but has never been out of communication for this long before, the AFP reports.

    I’m sure the Canadian media will be covering this story every day, just like the Christian couple in China. Oh wait, it has nothing to do with muslim journalists or gay rights, and we must not upset our good friends the Chinese.
