“North Korea has released a Canadian pastor who was imprisoned for allegedly attempting to overthrow the regime of Kim Jong Un on humanitarian grounds, state media reported Wednesday. Rim Hyon Su, also known as Hyeon Soo Lim, was sentenced to life imprisonment with hard labor in Dec. 2015. His release came a day after Canadian officials said a delegation led by the country’s national security adviser had traveled to North Korea to discuss his jailing, Canada’s Global News website reported.” (08/09/17)
