Trapped in North Korea, Christians suffer the most severe persecutions known to the modern world. Those who escape to China and are aided by Christian missionaries are immediately returned, only to be imprisoned or executed as Christian spies.
Christians, who are forced to practice their faith in secret, are often the targets of persecution. Those discovered are sent to concentration camps where they take part in forced labor. They are also subjected to sexual violence, torture and “extra-judicial” killings.
“Documented incidents include Christians being hung on a cross over a fire, crushed under a steamroller, herded off bridges and trampled under-foot,” the report claims.
CSW’s report is not the only report to document the brutal anti-Christian regime in Kim Jong Un’s North Korea.
