” Australian Missionary Worker arrested in `North Korea’ for being open about his Religious Work”

#AceWorldNews says an Australian man has been arrested while doing missionary work in North Korea, his wife told Reuters on Wednesday.

John Short, 75, was arrested in Pyongyang on Sunday and had been open about his religious work on his second trip to the state.

Short was in possession of religious materials that had been translated into Korean. North Korea has held American missionary Kenneth Bae for more than a year and convicted him of trying to overthrow the state.
