China arrests Christian missionaries for North Korea activities - UPI.com
UPI reports: "Chinese authorities have detained two South Korean Christian pastors
who were assisting North Korean refugees. [...] The two pastors have
been transferred to the Chinese city of Benxi in Liaoning Province,
where they are to await a final decision while in custody.
In February, Chinese authorities arrested four Christian missionaries
near the North Korea border."
Comment: I'm not sure we can really call this religious persecution. The pastors were not arrested for preaching, they were arrested for their involvement with North Koreans. Even so, it will bring unwanted attention to their local congregations and place many Christians in danger. Please join me in praying for the safety of the church in China.
