Evangelist has China arrest record
(02-20 13:12)

Australian evangelist John Short, 75, from Barmera, South Australia state, has been arrested multiple times while evangelizing in mainland China, which he started visiting after the death of Mao Zedong in 1976, according to a biography on a Christian website, Gospel Attract.
He was arrested in North Korea on Sunday after entering the country for evangelical work.
Short was banned from entering China for nearly two years after his second arrest in 1996. Authorities later let him back in and he was arrested several more times for “speaking out about the brutality against Chinese Christians,'' said the site.—AP
