ICC Note:

A North Korean Christian defector who was arrested and tortured in one of the North Korean prisons talks about the hardships that North Korean Christians face. An estimated 300,000 Christians who live in North Korea are under constant fear of being imprisoned, tortured, or even killed. Christian prisoners are often starved and as a result some of them have to hunt rats, snakes, and frogs to eat.  Consequently, North Korea remains the most dangerous place for Christians to live in. 

10/25/2017 North Korea (Fox News) – North Korean Choi Kwanghyuk is one of the lucky ones.

The 55-year-old managed to escape from the work camp where he was sent after being targeted and persecuted by the government for his Christian faith.

“We couldn’t raise our voice during a service, we couldn’t sing out loud during a worship … that was hard,” Choi told Fox News through a translator. “Also, we had to hide so that other people could not see us.”

Despite having to hide his faith in plain sight while living in North Hamgyong province, Choi was still compelled to bring religion to others when he started an underground church.
