April 15, 2011

Over 50,000 Christians are being held in prison in North Korea, according to a Fides news agency report. Juche, the state ideology developed in the 1950s by Kim Il-Sung, is the only system of belief permitted in the nation.

A recent UN human rights report highlighted the torture and forced labor that take place in the Communist nation’s prison camps.
