17 Photos of Daily Life in North Korea
North Korea is the most dangerous place in the world to be a Christian. Leading the World Watch List for the 16th year in a row, it's clear that having anything to do with Christianity is impossible without persecution. It's also one of the most closed off countries on the planet. Many people have never seen what goes on inside it's borders.
