Rights groups are pushing the United Nations high commissioner for human rights to open an international investigation into Pyongyang's "deplorable" record on its citizens' rights, including a system of political prisons that has operated for more than 50 years.Pyongyang insists that the camps do not exist and are merely foreign propaganda, but the advent of high-resolution, free images from outer space has disproved that claim.On January 18, the North Korean Economy Watch website announced that a new camp had been identified alongside an existing detention facility in Kaechon, South Pyongan Province. ...read more: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/northkorea/9826125/Google-Earth-exposes-North-Koreas-secret-prison-camps.html

Brother Greg, you know what's ironic?...this very info, 34 years ago presented in the form it is, fairly hi-res overhead recon photos of nk ground facilities, would have been classified top secret codeword.here's a prayer point we all should consider when we pray for the evangelization of north Korea....standing in the wings...waiting...with resource at the ready, both the "moonies" (i dont know the name of sun yong moon's church) and the jehovah's witness's are all geared up to rush in, with their false 'gospels'.just something to consider while we labor on our knees.
HW we do cry out for the evangelization of N. Korea in our persecution watch calls. Even now tbe gospel is going forth into that country. Voice of the Martyrs estimates the average life span of an evangelist is 3 to 6 months in N. Korea. But there are those who will risk death to get tbe gospel into that nation.While the cults wait for N. Korea to open up. Believers in Jesus Christ are carrying the good news into the hermit kingdom.Something to oraise God for.Bearnaster.
