China’s government is not only cracking down on its own Christian citizens, it is also targeting South Koreans who are in the country and allegedly helped persecuted North Koreans who escaped Kim Jong-un’s oppressive regime.

According to The Christian Post, the Chinese provinces of Liaoning, Jilin, and Heilongjiang have together deported hundreds of South Korean Christians who are evangelizing and engaging in missionary work.

In the province of Jilin, all South Korean churches have reportedly been closed due to China’s campaign to “eradicate extremism.”
