Detained Korean evangelist points to Seoul intel link
(02-27 11:43)

A South Korean Baptist missionary arrested for allegedly trying to establish underground Christian churches in North Korea has told reporters he is sorry for his “anti-state'' crimes and appealed for his release.
Kim Jeong Uk told a news conference today he was arrested in October after entering the north from China and trying to make his way to Pyongyang with bibles, Christian instructional materials and movies. He said he had received assistance from South Korea's intelligence agency.
He said he was unsure what punishment he would face. He asked for the mercy of North Korean authorities and said he requested the news conference to show his family he is in good health. –AP
