A very disturbing picture emerges of the so-called ‘religious freedom’ that Kim Jong-Il claims he allows. Note that the woman was also charged with spying–this must be Kim’s excuse for publicly executing people who preach the Bible. — SKG
Slain woman also accused of spying; family sent to prison camp, report says
SEOUL, South Korea – North Korea publicly executed a Christian woman last month for distributing the Bible, which is banned in the communist nation, South Korean activists said Friday.
Ri Hyon Ok, 33, was also accused of spying for South Korea and the United States and organizing dissidents. She was executed in the northwestern city of Ryongchon near the border with China on June 16, according to a report from an alliance of several dozen anti-North Korea groups.
