Please read Detained Missionary Deported, by Julie Oosterhouse, at Mission Network News.
"According to early reports from Fox News, the Korean Central News Agency says that Australian Missionary, John Short, is to be deported from the country. We are still awaiting confirmation from Voice of the Martyrs USA that these reports are valid.
"Earlier, they brought us the news of Short’s arrest. He was detained by North Korean authorities last month. His crime? VOM tells us his arrest was due to his possession of Christian literature. Short was caught passing out Bible tracts near a Buddhist temple on Kim Jong II’s birthday."
