Three United States Men Released Yesterday From North Korean Prison

Yesterday, Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, returned home three United States men who had spent the previous 1-3 years in a North Korean prison. Kim Dong-Chul, Kim Hak-Song and Tony Kim were  imprisoned were Christians, and ethnically Korean.  Two were wrongfully accused of hostile acts which resulted in an arrest spring of 2017.  The third, according to USA Today , was accused of supposedly spying on North Korea and attempting to steal military secrets for South Korea.

Three United States Men

Fortunately, all three United States men appear to be in good health.  Not everyone released from North Korea has been so blessed.  Just last year, one American student was released from North Korea and was in a coma when released.  He died soon after his return to the United States.  Additionally, a pastor from Canada who was released last year, was also unwell after his release.

The three men released a statement on their way home thanking God, their families and friends who prayed for their safe return, according to USA Today.

Last week, Trump hinted at a possible release.  North Korea’s release of the three United States men was done to prepare for the upcoming meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong-un later this year.  The New York Times remarked that the release was an American condition to the planned nuclear talks.
