Canadian pastor returns home after release from North Korean prison

Canadian pastor Hyeon Soo Lim has returned to his home in a Toronto suburb after being released from a North Korean prison.

Lim, who had disappeared on a mission to North Korea in early 2015, was sentenced to hard labour for life in December 2015 for attempting to overthrow the Pyongyang regime.

The news of his release was announced last Wednesday after North Korea’s KCNA news agency said Lim was being let go on humanitarian grounds.
