North Korea: Canadian Church Leader Freed

PYONGYANG – After spending three months in prison for trying to start a church in North Korea, a Canadian aid worker has been freed, the Associated Press reported on January 28.  Kim Je-yell was met at the border between North Korea and China by Canadian consular officials, who have been assisting Kim and ensuring his safety. North Korea grants nominal freedom of religion and has been identified by the U.S. State Department as a country of particular concern every year since 2001.
