American Jailed by North Koreans a Missionary?

By Martin Roth

The NK News organization says that Kenneth Bae – the American recently sentenced to 15 years hard labor in North Korea after taking photos of starving children – was in fact a China-based missionary.

According to NK News, he was attached to YWAM, with a home church in St Louis. In China he had established a small travel agency aimed at promoting visits to North Korea.

Western media reports suggest that Bae’s arrest and imprisonment is aimed at enticing a high-ranking Western dignitary to visit North Korea, to boost the reputation of┬áKim Jong-Un.
